First Housing Development In 20 Years Coming To Town of Erwin

Fishery Village to Welcome 36 New Homesites


The first housing development in more than two decades has broken ground in Unicoi County. Fishery Village will be home to 36 families when completed over the next few years.

“New residential developments are very much a part of our economic development strategy and Fishery Village is a great example,” says Unicoi County Joint Economic Development Chairman Lee Brown. “Welcoming new families here will grow our county’s population and increased property values will enhance our tax base to lighten the burden for existing property owners in the county.”

The 36 homesites will be constructed by Wolfe Development, Inc. led by former Jonesborough Mayor and developer Kelly Wolfe. “Lee Brown and his team have done a tremendous job as ambassadors for Unicoi County during three years of planning for Fishery Village,” Wolfe explains. “We have had significant interest from residential contractors to get started on building homes at the site as soon as our infrastructure is in place.”

Fishery Village will be served by sewer, water and one gigabyte fiber optic Internet service for one and two-level homes of approximately 1,400 to 2,000 square feet. Located at the intersection of Zane Whitson Drive and Brown Road, its location is convenient due to its proximity to shopping, dining, and Interstate 26 for travel.

“Fishery Village will be a wonderful option for those wanting a new home and for those seeking a home on one level,” says Wolfe. “We expect to see homes under construction at the development by mid-year 2022.”

Wolfe Development is a leading developer of commercial, residential, and multi-unit housing in Washington County. The company has more than thirty years of construction experience, with its corporate office located in Jonesborough. For more information, call (423) 913-2555 or visit
