The town of Farragut, located just minutes from downtown Knoxville, primarily is a residential area with a population of approximately 17,000 people. It was originally known as Campbell’s Station, the site of a Civil War battle. Admiral David Farragut defeated the Confederates there in 1863.
Besides its upscale housing, it boasts a fair amount of open space with multiple greenways including Grigsby Chapel Greenway and Turkey Creek Greenway. Soccer and softball fields, playgrounds, picnic facilities, and walking trails can be found in the three parks located throughout Farragut.
Close to the town of Farragut are three golf courses and the shopping mecca of Turkey Creek.
There are over 300 acres of shopping fun along with a gigantic movie theater and countless restaurants.
Business Week in 2007 named Farragut one of the 25 most affordable suburbs in the South.
