Knoxville College is a historically black college in Knoxville, Tennessee, founded in 1875 by the United Presbyterian Church of North America. At first it offered education in grades 1-12 to prepare freedmen for higher education; by 1931 the high-school level Academy was disbanded, leaving Knoxville College a four-year institution.

Knoxville is also the home of the Women's Basketball Hall of Fame, thanks partly to the popularity of Pat Summitt and the University of Tennessee women's basketball team.
Knoxville was the capital of the Southwest Territory from 1791 until 1797.
Knoxville's economy is largely fuelled by the regional location of the main campus of the University of Tennessee, the Oak Ridge National Laboratory, the National Transportation Research Center and the Tennessee Valley Authority, making Knoxville the heart of the high-tech Tennessee Valley Corridor extending from Blacksburg, Virginia to Huntsville, Alabama.
