This is a great opportunity to see historic preservation in progress and connect with folks who are passionate about preserving, restoring and transforming the places that make Knoxville a great place to live and work.

Residents and interested supporters are invited to join the Knox Heritage community with a membership. Knox Heritage’s architectural salvage efforts have saved countless treasures from the landfill and provided materials for restoration projects across the region. The new office is located at 619 Broadway and offers an expanded inventory, plus will also host artisans and craftspeople for retail and gallery exhibits.

Editor’s Note: There will be a grand opening for the new Broadway space on April 3, 2015.
