Rick Dover, local award winner from the Tennessee Historical Commission and the East Tennessee Historical Society, is continuously moving forward with future projects in a mission to preserve history in Knoxville.

Rick Dover is General Manager of Family Pride Corporation, which is the oldest and largest provider of senior living solutions in the Knoxville area. Rick Dover’s current projects in and around the Knoxville area include the Alexander Inn in Oak Ridge and the Oakwood Elementary School in North Knoxville.

The redevelopment and repurposing of these historic landmarks will both preserve the history of Tennessee and provide senior citizens affordable assisted living.

The Oakwood Elementary School in North Knoxville, Tennessee will be converted into a new, top-of-the-line Knoxville assisted living and memory care community; preserving the heritage of the community while utilizing environmentally friendly and sustainable building methods.

The Alexander Inn, originally built during the Manhattan Project to house official visitors and later converted into a hotel, is included on the National Register of Historic Places, and developer Rick Dover plans to invest up to $5 million to turn the World War II era hotel into an assisted living center for seniors.
