Historic neighborhoods thrive on both sides of Broadway--Fourth and Gill on the right, and Old North on the left. Cruise these streets to see examples of Queen Anne, shotgun, Victorian, Craftsman, Tudor Revival, and other late 19th- and early 20th-century architecture. The area, once known as "trolleyburb" and called North Knoxville, linked factory workers to the city by electric streetcars in the 1890s. North Hills, one of Knoxville's first neighborhoods, was established in 1927. Catering to the middle class, this subdivision had several restrictions, including a minimum size (six rooms), construction costs ($5,000), and residents' ethnicity: sales "outside of the Caucasian race," were prohibited. Today it's featured every April on the nationally-recognized Dogwood Trail & Arts Festival.
