Powell Real Estate
The Old South’s culture is still seen in Powell today. Powell is rich in architecture with many Antebellum homes along Emory Road and many of the original neighborhoods in Powell. I have learned that during the Civil War, there are many homes in the original area of Powell that is said to have been used as Confederate hospitals.
Despite its status as unincorporated, Powell is considered to be more of an “independent” small town than a suburb. One of the reasons behind this is that it was established in 1789 (two years before the establishment of Knoxville) by settlers passing throughEast Tennessee into the frontier. Among these early settlers was Stockley Donelson (1753–1804), a brother-in-law of PresidentAndrew Jackson. Donelson’s home, now known as the Alexander Bishop House, still stands on Bishop Lane.Another early settler was John Manifee, a Revolutionary War veteran who built a small fort and trading station along what is now Clinton Highway in the late 1780s.
