Meet Your Guide
Laura Still: writer, teacher, and Knoxville history buff
What started your interest in Knoxville history? That should start with who—for me, it’s always about the people, because that’s what connects us to history. I’ve always been interested in who walked here before me, and that’s what made me start following Jack Neely’s “Secret History” column in Metropulse. The people in Jack’s stories were sometimes famous but many of them were just ordinary people. Ordinary people fascinate me, because they do such extraordinary things sometimes. I started reading and collecting stories about Knoxville, and found out there’s practically an endless supply, just as Jack is always saying.
