Knoxville, Tennessee - Then and Now

Biltmore Tourist Court - 4940 Kingston Pike

UPDATE: 12-15-2011 I hear from a reader that the Biltmore is no more. Demolished.


This is from about 1940 judging by the cars I can see. Phone 8-9148


Here it is today. On the right, we now have a dress shop which got a stone facade in the 50s. Opal's Lounge is off to the right. The property's current owner also owns Opal's building.


I asked the current owner if the neon still worked. He said no and thought I was crazy to ask I think.

UPDATE: 12-2011: The Biltmore Court is no more. Read a story about the owners by Jack Neely HERE.
