About Powell and Knoxville
Powell is an unincorporated community in Knox County, Tennessee. The area is located in the Emory Road (State Route 131) corridor, just north of Knoxville, southeast of Clinton, and east of Oak Ridge. Powell was established in 1789 by settlers moving through East Tennessee into the frontier. Among these early settlers was Stockley Donelson, a brother-in-law of President Andrew Jackson. Donelson's home, now known as the Alexander Bishop House, still stands on Bishop Lane. Attracted by a ready supply of water and good farming land, some settlers stayed to establish one of the first trading outposts in Knox County. The community got its name from the Powell Station train stop.
Founded in 1786, Knoxville is the third-largest city in the U.S. state of Tennessee, behind Memphis and Nashville, and is the county seat of Knox County. It is also the largest city in East Tennessee. Knoxville is the principal city of the Knoxville Metropolitan Statistical Area with a metro population of 655,400, which is in turn the central component of the Knoxville-Sevierville-La Follette Combined Statistical Area with 1,029,155 residents.
Knoxville is probably best known for the University of Tennessee which is located just west of downtown. Before Knoxville was known has a college town, it was a river town. The French Broad and Holston Rivers come together just north of downtown to form the mighty Tennessee River.
