My wife and I puzzled over this recurrent caption on the signs of Farragut, Tennessee located somewhat to the southeast of Knoxville. When provided with the information, we were intrigued:
1) What made it historical?
2) Where is this Downtown? We were familiar with bustling Kingston Pike and with Turkey Creek shopping; but where was this downtown?
As near as we could determine, Farragut was named after Admiral David Farragut, a Yankee admiral and I won't say more!
But as for the downtown: it wasn't built yet. It was a concept yet to be realized. This planned development combined what looks like a typical small southern downtown with residences in the general area.
It wasn't built yet.
I remember Muscle Shoals. Back in the 1930's it was projected that Ford would move in big-time, and grow into an urban area with a population of 100,000. The clock's still ticking on that one.
