Built in 1920 by architect & founder of Thompson Photo, James E. Thompson, this 2 story Colonial Revival brick home is a Dogwood Trail showstopper! Petitioned to be demolished, the home was purchased by auction in 1992, & an amazing restoration ensued. In 1997, the Thompson-Bridges homes was recognized by the Knoxville Historical Society with the Preservation Award. In 1999, the MPC awarded the owner with an Award of Excellence for Renovation/Restoration along with the Bijou Theatre. Behind the gated drive, a spectacular English garden commands attention, & has received much! Several news articles have been published showcasing the raised beds, stone walkways, & water features, all designed & built by the current owner.
