Sullivan Gardens, Tennessee

Jump to: navigation, search

Sullivan Gardens is an unincorporated community in southwestern Sullivan County, Tennessee, located southwest of Kingsport.[1] Since the 1990's, Sullivan Gardens has experienced a decline, due mainly to the construction of the Sullivan Gardens Parkway, which re-routed Highway 93, and resulted in traffic being routed around, rather than through, the town, leading to the eventual closure of a number of small businesses. Prior to the late 1990's, there were a number of small, locally owned stores and businesses along the old Highway 93 in the town of Sullivan Gardens, including gas stations, a plant nursery, pharmacy, and hardware store. All of these businesses are now closed and many of the buildings that housed them have been demolished or abandoned.

Education[edit]

Sullivan Elementary School and Sullivan Middle School are located in the "downtown" area.

Transportation[edit]

Tennessee State Route 93 (Sullivan Gardens Parkway) runs north and south through the community and Tennessee State Route 347 (Lone Star Road) runs east and west.
