White City is among the oldest neighborhoods in Kingsport. The homes, designed by New York based architect Clinton Mackenzie, were required by the deeds to be painted white, hence the name White City. Construction in White City began in 1919 and the area was marketed as being designed for the workman with the idea that every worker in the city could own their own home.
