Halls Business & Professional Association, Inc.
Thank you for visiting our website! The Halls Business and Professional Association (HBPA) is a group of business owners, residents, professionals, and public servants, who live and/or work in the Halls-Crossroads Community. There are good things happening in Halls this year. New businesses are opening along with major upgrades to roads, street lighting, walking trails, and parks.
The HBPA has a great board of directors with lots of positive energy. HBPA is helping promote a better quality of life in many ways. For example, we lobbied County Commision and the Mayor’s Office for new street lighting which is being installed in 2018. We also sponsor beautification projects, and maintain the “Welcome to Halls” signs, we also sponsor a Christmas parade and other community events. We also have great relationships with our business, schools, and government representatives. Our Partners in Education program provides ongoing assistance to six Halls community schools and we collaborate with the Knox County Sheriff’s Office to do a roadside cleanup the first week of each month.
HPBA members have a lunch meeting at Beaver Brook Country Club on the third Tuesday of each month (except December). Beaver Brook caters a nice lunch for $10.00, we invite interesting speakers to talk to us and promote Halls businesses with our monthly Business Spotlight.
We would like you to get involved with HPBA. For more information about joining please send an email to Michele Wilson our membership chair at HBPA Membership.
Halls Crossroads is an unincorporated area in North Knox County, immediately north of the city limits of Knoxville, TN in the 37938 zip code (population approximately 17,884 residents). The “crossroads” are Emory Road and Maynardville Highway. Halls is named for Thomas Hall (1758-1833) who moved to the area in 1796 from North Carolina. Mr. Hall served in the Revolutionary War and distinguished himself when he was imprisoned by the British at the Siege of Charleston. For his service, the United States awarded him a parcel of land on the north side of Black Oak Ridge which is today part of the Halls community. The historical Thomas Hall Cemetery is located off Rifle Range Road, near Maynardville Highway and descendants of Thomas Hall still reside in the Halls community.
The Halls community is served by six public Knox County schools, i.e., Adrian Burnett Elementary, Brickey McCloud Elementary, Copper Ridge Elementary, Halls Elementary, Halls Middle, and Halls High. For more information about Halls and the immediate area click on the link below.
