Riverwalk with Jack Neely
Completed almost 20 years ago, Volunteer Landing interprets, with permanent marble markers, the city’s complex relationship with its famous river--with quotes from famous authors and well as short narratives about early settlers, the Civil War, and Tennessee football, as well as a statue commemorating a complicated treaty with the Cherokee signed on that site. Author Jack Neely, of the Knoxville History Project, did the research for those stone markers, and will offer this first-ever guided tour.
