#1 - Tennessee Woman Suffrage Memorial

The Tennessee Woman Suffrage Memorial is located in Market Square Mall in downtown Knoxville, Tennessee.

The Tennessee Woman Suffrage Memorial by sculptor Alan LeQuire was unveiled at Market Square Mall, August 26, 2006—after the culmination of 11 years of effort and a suffrage parade through downtown Knoxville, Tennessee. The Suffrage Coalition was founded to create a lasting memorial to the suffragists of Tennessee. The suffragists' efforts focused a nation as the last campaign was fought successfully to change the constitution. The Suffrage Coalition has erected a life-size, bronze statue featuring three Tennessee suffragists: Lizzie Crozier French of Knoxville, Anne Dallas Dudley of Nashville, and Elizabeth Avery Meriwether of Memphis.

#7 - Annie Davis

Annie Davis (1875-1957), who became a state legislator in 1925, Knoxville’s first woman elected to public office. That fact in itself would be worth commemorating. However, she’s more broadly known as the Mother of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Born in Louisville, Ky., she was a Bryn Mawr alumna who came to Knoxville with her industrialist husband Willis Davis in 1916. She and Willis had been traveling to the new western national parks when she made the proposal that the Smokies should get similar treatment. Her resourceful husband advanced the idea, and during her time as a state representative she promoted important legislation to make it happen.
