The Inspiration Behind the Room Names at Prime West Knoxville

Behind every name is a story, and the same can be said of the vibrant rooms at our pet-friendly retirement community in Knoxville, TN. Using local history and culture as a source of inspiration, we named our stylish senior living apartments after landmarks, Tennessee cities, an American Civil War battle, and a prominent 18th-century soldier. Let’s delve into the fun facts.

Gorgeous Rooms Informed by Noteworthy Landmarks and Places

Country music was born in Tennessee, so it’s only fitting that we dubbed one of our senior living apartments The Bristol, after the city of the same name. Bristol, which straddles the Tennessee-Virginia state line, is home to the Birthplace of Country Music Museum and the annual Bristol Rhythm & Roots Reunion music festival. 

Another nod to the region’s musical roots, our most spacious apartment, The Graceland, gets its moniker from a beloved Memphis attraction: Elvis’s mansion. Likewise, The Ryman apartment honors the eponymous Nashville auditorium for live music and events, while The Pike is inspired by a major retail corridor in Knoxville called Kingston Pike.

At Prime West Knoxville, residents can enjoy scenic courtyard views from The Ridge, our modern senior apartment named after the suburban city of Oak Ridge, a renowned scientific hub where the Manhattan Project was developed. 

A Historical Event That Inspired an Independent Living Residence

During the American Civil War, Union and Confederate troops clashed at the Battle of the Cumberland Gap. Soldiers fought for control of the Cumberland Gap, an advantageous area that adjoins three states: Tennessee, Virginia, and Kentucky. Taking its name from this battle, The Cumberland apartment is a comfortable one-bedroom haven in our Knoxville community.

A Spacious Senior Living Apartment That Honors a Pioneer

The Timberlake apartment serves as an homage to Henry Timberlake, an Anglo-American envoy who facilitated peace between the Cherokee and 18th-century settlers. Timberlake became immersed in Cherokee culture, learning about the indigenous people’s society and way of life. While living among the Native Americans, Timberlake kept a journal that was eventually published as a book, “The Memoirs of Lt. Henry Timberlake,” which remains invaluable among today’s scholars and historians.
