1982 Worlds Fair

May 10, 20231 min read

The 1982 World's Fair in Knoxville, TN was a momentous occasion and filled the city with excitement. The fair was held from May 1 to October 31 and was the first World's Fair in the United States since the 1964-1965 New York World's Fair. The fair featured over 60 countries and was a major event in the city's history. One of the most iconic symbols of the fair was the Sunsphere, a 266-foot-tall steel tower with a gold-colored glass sphere at the top. It was a popular attraction and was lit up in different colors during the fair.

The fair was also marred by controversy, as it was criticized for its large cost and the fact that it was funded by the taxpayers. Despite the controversy, the fair was a success and drew over 11 million visitors. It was a major event for Knoxville and helped to bring the city into the international spotlight.

Today, the Sunsphere is still a popular attraction in Knoxville and a reminder of the 1982 World's Fair. It serves as a reminder of the excitement and history of the fair and the city of Knoxville.

My intimate knowledge of this region, and my experiences of having lived here my whole life, give
me an enthusiasm and desire to make my home, your home. I truly love East Tennessee and I
love my job! I believe that your home is your sanctuary and should be treated as such. Whether
you’re buying your first home or seeking that dream retirement residence, the experience should
be nothing less than seamless. As a family woman and homeowner myself, I understand that
your home is more than just a place to live — it’s where you make long-lasting memories.
I help my clients navigate the often-challenging waters of the home buying and selling process,
with the end result only being a wonderful experience. I am here to listen and accommodate your
real estate needs. When I’m not busy helping clients, I enjoy spending time with my husband
James, our grown children and grandbabies.
