Black Oak Court

Knoxville, Tennessee – Then and Now

Black Oak Court – Motel

Note the glass bricks on the fronts.

The postcards say it is 3 miles north of Knoxville on Highways 33 and 71. That’s all. So I really had no idea where this was. Then one day as I was driving over Black Oak Ridge on North Broadway, it hit me. That old motel I had taken pictures of before there was the Black Oak Court! How had I been so dense?

Old picture card.
An old linen card
Another linen card. Makes the place look really nice.
A later chrome card.

Here is is today. The buildings are still there, but overgrown. The beautiful glass brick fronts are still there on the cabin/rooms.
