I know exactly which house you lived in! That is a gorgous place!!! That street has undergone major renovations up and down. Have you been there lately? It is one of the most sought after address' now a days. We are so pleased how Knoxvillian's are taking such pride in their heritage, and such a store of beautiful old homes there are here. We have been living in ours for 12 years and have pretty much restored EVERYTHING!!! We just got put on the National and State Historical Registers last July.

I will try to contact "Rich Mountain" and see if they are still around. You would certainly think that supplying coal to this area would be a good business, as many large old homes that still have coal grates as there are here. Thank you for the heads up.
Thank you Berlin, I will look into that suggestion. I would love to get a Bit coal furnace/boiler/stoker going for this place. DHW too.
