A city hike is a different experience from a mountain hike-with fewer waterfalls and breathtaking views-but certainly just as interesting. This new course will include four guided tours through Knoxville’s most fascinating walks. We’ll visit the University of Tennessee campus, showing how it has unfolded from a tiny regional college on its original hilltop campus of 1828 into a major university. We’ll discover the sculpture and biography of Old Gray Cemetery, with stories of the surprising and far-flung folks buried there. And we’ll explore downtown Knoxville in two separate walks-the original part from the river to Market Square, once known as Uptown, and then the railroad, Emory Place, Old City, Irish Town, and Cripple Creek area, once known as Downtown. Each walk will last about two hours, and we’ll conduct them rain or shine. (If the weather is really terrible, we’ll find a place inside to talk.)
Classes will be held every Wednesday 7:00pm – 9:00pm, beginning on 4/4 and ending on 4/25. Cost for the session is $129 and you can register on the UT Non-Credit page.
Please join us and help KHP exceed its goal of $20,000 from 2nd Annual Luncheon honoring Bob Booker.
This is KHP’s biggest and most important fundraiser of the year. We set the bar high last year and invite you all to make this year’s even better!
The luncheon will take place at the Foundry on Tuesday April 17 at 11:30 am
The highlight of the luncheon will be a memorable Q&A with Bob Booker and Jack Neely, KHP’s Executive Director.
