Our very own Nicole VanScoten tossed all kinds of Knoxville Twestival info your way last week. You going or not?
If you haven’t purchased your tickets we might just have the perfect gift for you and it’s not even Christmas, yet. The first person to correctly answer the Knoxville history question below will win a pair (2) of tickets to the Knoxville Twestival going down on September 10th at the Zoo. You must reply in the comments of this post and use your real e-mail address so we may contact you (if you win). Let ‘er rip!
Congrats to Tim who chimed in with the correct answer of Loveville. In case you’re curious, Loveville turned in to what we know today as Lovell. Thanks to everyone who played. We’ll have another chance to win tomorrow!
In the first half of the 1800’s, what was the first major village a traveler going west along Kingston Pike would encounter after leaving Knoxville?
Thanks and good luck to everyone.
All answers submitted on Facebook, Twitter, or other Knoxify-specific accounts will not be counted in the contest.
My guess is Campbell’s Station
Dixie Lee Junction
Katie, Tim F. and Allie: all great guesses but none are correct. Keep them coming!
The Village of Concord
i’m going to guess Concord.
Since nobody’s guessed Bearden yet, I’ll say that.
Frank, Eric, Kasey & Knox Animal: Two of you are warmer than the others. Keep guessing!
Sorry, I didn’t change the name on that last message and someone was already signed in. I guessed Farragut.
@Tim: And we have a winner! Loveville is the correct answer. Today we know it as Lovell. We’ll be in touch Tim.
Congrats, Tim! You’re the man!
@tim, How did you figure that out?
Very nice indeed… That’s a piece of Knoxville trivia that will now be forever embedded in my head.
@BCKnoxify: I grew up two minutes from there. I’ve driven by the historical marker more times than I can count.
