Annexed by the City of Knoxville in 1883, Mechanicsville gets its name from the factories and mills right outside its borders where many of its residents worked. One of the oldest neighborhoods (developed in the late 19th century) and among the first to become an historic overlay district, Mechanicsville is host to a wide variety of grand, beautiful homes of the Victorian era. The neighborhood is also home to Knoxville College, a historically black college, and Emerald Academy, Knoxville’s only charter school. Mechanicsville is located within easy walking distance of downtown, World’s Fair Park, and the University of Tennessee.
