Endangered Landmarks of Knox County


Knox County is lucky to have many historic and notable buildings. These places are what makes the county unique. Not all of them are in good shape and sadly, some are not around anymore at all. That's why every year, KCLF will release its list of "Endangered Landmarks". The purpose of the list to celebrate those places that have been saved, find new purposes for those that are endangered and remember those that are gone. Hopefully, this list will inspire the community to get involved in preserving Knox County's heritage before it is too late.
