Street Sign Update!

Historic District Street Sign

You might have noticed the new “Historic 4th and Gill Neighborhood” street signs that have been installed over the past few weeks. The effort was lead by a fundraising committee, including Katy Hawley, Joe Miles, Kaye Osborne, Sue Russell, Brent Waugh, and Melynda and Bob Whetsel.

Not only did the neighborhood surpass its goal of $8,000 needed to purchase the signs, we did so in only three weeks—a week earlier than planned. As a result, the City of Knoxville was able to install nearly all the signs by early April, in time for the 2018 Home Tour.

We reached our goal through nearly 50 gifts of all sizes—thank you to the supporters who made Fourth and Gill’s historic district street signs possible, including:
Gabrielle Boudreau and Gordon Coker                    Thomas Boyd
Sam Crockett                                                                  Howard Cyr and Katy Hawley
Nick Della Volpe                                                            Elisabeth and Scott Dossey
Elias Fernandez and Nina Martyris                          Nancy Fitzpatrick
Kaye Graybeal and David Silverthorn                      Patrick Grzanka and Joe Miles
Steve Hancock                                                               Anna Hays
Dave and Renee Hewitt                                               Mary Anne Hoskins
Indya Kincannon                                                          Jim and Lori Klonaris
Sean and Sara Martin                                                  Jeri and Steve McNeany
Karen, Lucia, and Giacomo McNeany                      Laurie Meschke
Kevin Nelson                                                                 Ashley and Brandon Pace
Shannon Parks Denton                                               Tricia Roelofs
Sue G. Russell                                                                Joel, Melissa, and Lia Stefanini
Jeff Talman                                                                    Jason and Mary June Thompson          Meg Staton and Evan Tishuk                                     Jennifer and Mike Torgeson

Chris and Melissa Weddig                                          Bob and Melynda Whetsel
Jonathan and Lacy Wiesehuegel                               Jenny Wright and Coconut
