Once upon a time, there was a small city in East Tennessee called Knoxville. Seeing the city now, one could have never guessed that this city has a rich past.  Knoxville Walking Tours offers several tours: Civil War, Gunslingers, Early Years and Shadow Side Ghost Tour. These 90 minute tours let you hear history first hand instead of reading it in a textbook.
