Riverview Apartments – Kingsport TN

Description

The brick “restrained Colonial Revival style” (Van West, 2001, p. 148) two-story apartment complex contained 48 units for African-Americans. Constructed at the same time as the Robert E. Lee Homes for whites, both complexes were funded for a total of $607,000.

The facility was demolished in 2008 in order to construct new housing.
