Lenoir City Homes for Sale
Lenoir City is located southwest of Knoxville in Loudon County. It's home to just over 9100 residents and is part of the Knoxville Metro area along the Tennessee River. Getting its start in the late 19th century, the city was designed in a four-quadrant master plan design; the northwest quadrant would be a middle-class residential area, the Northeast would be a more blue-collar area, the southwest quadrant would contain more steelworks in industrial factories and the southeast quadrant would contain more woodworking and canning factories.
During the start of the 20th century, the city implemented more garden and park areas with the movement of more health and temperance. Beginning in the 1930s, the federal government boosted the city's economy with the construction of the Fort Loudoun Dam and reservoir. This provided hundreds of local jobs and a number of road improvements to the area. The interstate highway system was developed in the 1950s bringing in more folks from the Knoxville area into the more suburban community of Lenoir City. During the early 2000s, Lenoir City continued to grow economically with more restaurants, major box stores like the Home Depot, and the Fort Loudoun Medical Center.

If you're looking for a great barbecue, Aubrey's makes one of the meanest burgers, ribs, and desserts in town. Buddy's BBQ comes in as a close competitor to Aubrey's with pulled pork, smoked chicken, and other barbecue staples.
Nature lovers will love to hike the Hall Bend Trail, a 5-mile loop trail that all levels of hikers can explore.

"I love the small town feel of Lenoir City with the convenience of Knoxville being so close. I have lived in Lenoir City my entire life and my parents have both grown up in Loudon County. I went to the Loudon County Schools for elementary and middle school, Eaton Elementary School and North Middle School. And I am currently enrolled in Lenoir City High School with plans to graduate in May 2021. I have enjoyed all of my years in these schools. The education has been tailored to my needs and the teachers and administrative staff have always been very supportive. Most of my extended family (grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins) live in Loudon County. I would recommend Loudon County to anyone who likes the idea of a small, close-knit town that is family friendly, but also has access to a big city like Knoxville that is only about 15 minutes away. Knoxville is close enough that one doesn't have to drive far to big events, but far enough away that you don't have that big city living." - Niche.com
