With Fountain Lake at its center and Blackoak and Beaver Ridges hemming it in at its sides, the community of Fountain City in northern Knoxville boasts dramatic scenery.

Locals affectionately refer to Fountain City Lake as “the duck pond,” and it is one of several recreational spaces located in the area. Fountain City Park is a neighborhood highlight, with a 12-acre open space surrounding a spring which feeds into First Creek.

Fountain City possesses a distinct character different from Knoxville’s. Until its annexation by the city of Knoxville in the 1950s, Fountain City was the United States’ largest unincorporated community and the annexation was fiercely opposed at the time. With the beautiful surrounding ridges providing a sense of serenity and seclusion, it’s easy to see why Fountain City’s residents consider the area a place of their own.

Gorgeous historic homes share the neighborhood’s tree-lined streets with contemporary architecture, but all are universally spacious.
