1. Hubris Building Marker
Inscription.  The Hubris Building is in the National register's Southern Terminal and Warehouse Historic District. This area flourished during the shipping and migration boom of the late 1700's and early 1800's, due to its proximity to the railroads. The building was re-developed in 1919 to allow for Gay St rail line crossing. 100 years later, in 2018 the building was completely updated preserving its rich history and beauty.

Also see . . .  Southern Terminal and Warehouse Historic District (Wikipedia). During the 1850s, the arrival of the railroad — namely the East Tennessee, Virginia and Georgia Railroad and its predecessor lines — transformed Knoxville from a small river town of just over 2,000 residents to one of the southeast's major wholesaling centers. Wholesaling firms built dozens of large warehouses along Jackson Avenue and adjacent streets, where smalltown merchants from across East Tennessee would purchase goods and supplies to resell at rural general stores.
