Knoxville is an unincorporated community in and the county seat of Crawford County, Georgia, United States.[1] The community is part of the Macon Metropolitan Statistical Area.

Knoxville was founded in 1823 as seat of the newly formed Crawford County. It was incorporated as a town in 1825.[2] The former city's municipal charter was dissolved in 1995 pursuant to a Georgia law which abolished city governments which were defunct or minimally operative.

There are two National Register of Historic Places in Knoxville, which are the Crawford County Courthouse, and the Crawford County Jail.
