Economic Development of Knoxville

The economy of Knoxville TN has changed remarkably over the years. Knoxville Downtown is the center of governmental, economic, and cultural activity for the region.While it is now a center of technology and businesses oriented around advancing energy and environmental science and engineering, not so long ago (before TVA), the area was dependent (75 years ago) on hard scrabble farming and regional trade for subsistence. Knoxville was once known as the "Marble City" because of the production of quarrying and production of architectural marble. Now, it is it advancing the sciences in such institutions as the University of Tennessee, Oak Ridge National Laboratory, and the Y-12 National Security Complex. One of the best things about modern Knoxville is its diverse economy. While the heavy weights driving the economy are technological, Knoxville is a retirement destination and the center of economic activity for a large part of East Tennessee.
