1. Chisolm's Tavern Marker
Inscription. Chisholm's Tavern was the name of a tavern (more defined as an Inn) in the 1790s located near the site of the Dwight Kessel Garage. The tavern was established by John Chisholm, an early settler important to the development of Knoxville. Chisholm was one of the few settlers who was actually Scottish-born and a key operative in the Blount Plot of 1797. Knoxville was home to at least seven taverns, or hotels, in the 1790s.
