Powell is about a 15-minute drive north of Knoxville and a little less than 3 hours from Nashville.

History of Powell
The town had some famous footballers, including the ESPN college football analyst, John Cooper, plus the NFL tight end Lee Smith, and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers guard, John Bruhin. Powell’s economy first emerged from bricks made from the local Beaver Creek. As the Powell area grew, houses emerged. Some were believed to be used for Confederate hospitals during the Civil War. At one point, Powell had a rural airstrip, but it was annexed in 2013. This was when the Knoxville City Council approved a shopping complex that included Kroger supermarket, Regal Cinemas, and Kohl’s department store. Today, Weigel’s chain of convenience stores has its headquarters in Powell, and Powell’s largest employer is DeRoyal Industries, a company that manufactures and markets medical products. The more famous Levi’s jeans company used to have their manufacturing plant there as well, but the plant was closed down, and the location is now the site of Crown College.
