Knoxville, Iowa

There is a campground available at the nearby county park. Also, there are lots of camping facilities around Red Rock Reservoir just north east of Knoxville.

The history of Knoxville begins in 1845 when town lots went up for sale and the town was named after General Knox in memory of his service in the American Revolution. He was President Abraham Lincoln's war secretary.

Forward-thinking citizens came up with a plan to entice a railroad by proposing to buy shares in the railroad that reached them first. This occurred in 1875, and the winning name was the Chicago, Burlington and Quincy Railroad. Another line quickly followed the next year. A coal mine opened just 8 blocks from the courthouse around the same time and continued operation locally until 1892.

Knoxville's current population is around 7,200. It is reputed to have an excellent school system, abundant farmlands and woodlands surrounding the city site and excellent recreational opportunities. Light manufacturing, agriculture and tourism are the mainstays of the economy.
