Knoxville Presbyterian Church

Knoxville Presbyterian Church

The outstanding feature of this church is its outsized corner tower; the architect has cleverly emphasized its height with strong vertical lines. Corner towers are common in churches on corner lots, but seldom do they reach these proportions.


There are also smaller towers at three of the other four corners of the building, and a matching Sunday-school wing is attached.

Rear of the church

This is one of several abandoned churches in Knoxville, but at least somebody mows the lawn and sweeps away the trash. Note the steep slope that makes two floors’ difference between the front of the lot and the back of the lot.
