Knox Heritage

WUOT News, Matt Moon

  The Knoxville preservation group Knox Heritage has once again placed the Fort Sanders Neighborhood at the top of its annual list of endangered historic properties.  The Fragile Fifteen list released today highlights several Fort Sanders homes and the former IGA grocery store on 18th Street, all of which could be demolished to make way for expansion projects at the University of Tennessee and Fort Sanders Regional Medical Center.     

The neighborhood, located just north of UT’s campus, also topped the 2013 list.
