Generations of Excellence

In 1939, Andy Farmer started a wrecker service on Depot Avenue in Knoxville, Tennessee. During 1940, Mr. Farmer moved his business over to the corner of Chestnut Street and Wilson Avenue, into a Pure Oil station. This new location had a garage, which is how “Chestnut Street Garage” was born.

In June of 1961, the company was purchased by James E. "Moon" Mullins, the grandfather of the current owners, and Melford White. During the 1960’s through the early 1990’s, Chestnut Street Garage grew and moved locations until settling at its current address off of Rutledge Pike. Since 1961, it has been family owned, operated and fourth generation family members are currently employed by Chestnut Street. We expanded this tradition in December of 2002 by acquiring Cedar Bluff Towing in West Knoxville, Tennessee.
