The charming riverside community of Strawberry Plains is located on the bank of the Holston River, a little over twenty minutes east of Downtown Knoxville via I-40.
This peaceful community takes its name from the strawberries which blanketed the area when settlers first arrived. Today Strawberry Plains is a relatively large unincorporated community that straddles the boundary between Tennessee’s Jefferson, Knox, and Sevier counties.
Life here is laidback and residents consistently enjoy Strawberry Plains’ verdant green spaces and the idyllic stretch of the Holston River which meanders through its boundaries.
