On Monday, the East Tennessee Preservation Alliance put out their newest Endangered Heritage List for East Tennessee. While there are still many historic structures that need help, one building is notable for not being on the list.
The Alexander Inn in Oak Ridge has been a mainstay on the endangered list for years. The historic inn dates back to the 1940's, but fell into disrepair over the years.
Developers have been working since last May to stabilize and are now renovating the property for its new use as a senior living facility.
"By partnering with the city of Oak Ridge and The Department of Energy we were able to bring the resources together to pop it loose and get it into the hands of someone who is going to completely restore it and is going to make it available for a new use and make it available for the public to still be able to access it," sais Kim Trent with Knox Heritage.
The renovated building will be called the "Guest House Alexander Inn Senior Living," According to its Facebook page, several people have already signed up to live at the facility.
