The Historic Homes of Knoxville is a local partnership, sponsored and coordinated by the Arts & Culture Alliance, among seven historic homes that offer guided tours throughout the year. Visit their website at www.hhknoxville.org for more information on Blount Mansion, Crescent Bend, James White’s Fort, Mabry-Hazen House, Marble Springs, Ramsey House, and Westwood.
From a rough frontier settlement to a grand state capital to the attractive city you see today, the history of Knoxville is a vivid tale of the trials and triumphs of a growing town and a growing nation. It’s a wild and often surprising tale marvelously told by the city’s most historic homes. From log cabins to frame houses to stately stone mansions, these seven Knoxville landmarks invite you into the past to experience the times and events that shaped them and the families who occupied them. Each is a chapter of history unto itself. And yet, together, they exemplify and celebrate the continuing pioneering spirit that created Knoxville and our great nation.
Visitors may tour each site individually or purchase a combo pass to receive discounted admission.
