An interesting old house. The poetry scattered throughout is pretty terrible but kind of an eccentric cool thing to see once.

Each and every year during Emancipation Week we visit from CT and attend the Knott House program. The program with the Emancipation re-enactment is a true historic event brought to life and each and every year I learn something new while attending this event. The fact that this programs also includes the community and allows African Americans to participate and... More

This beautiful old stately home was left to the City of Tallahassee and it ‘s a free museum that you shouldn’t miss! We had a very informative tour with our guide, Bea – who loves the house and Mrs. Knott’s poetry -- found everywhere around the house. Even though the stairs were difficult for Bea, she gave us a “private... More

Had an informative tour. Great to see how people lived and hear about their daily lives. Loved the fact that there might be a ghost there.

nice bit of history. Street this is on has many old homes-most seem to be lawyer offices now. Knott's left this home to the city. Our group of schoolkids had a hands on class w/a wonderful instructor...good bit of history with archeology/anthropology slant. Lots to see (don't touch!) and volunteer who gave us a tour wore her white gloves altho... More

Excellent tour by a well versed and pleasant guide. There are a lot of interesting stories in and about this house. The poetry Mrs. Knott wrote is displayed all around the house. The story of this family is really interesting. I recommend you not miss this if you are visiting Tallahassee. The area around this house has a lot of... More

We visited the Knitt a house last winter for a special event. While there we were also able to visit the museum. A nice small museum.

This is a well-presented house museum, with many ties to Florida history. The lady of the house was a little on the peculiar side, and among other eccentricities she wrote poems (well, doggerel) about the various pieces of furniture. These are attached to the furniture, and visitors can read her rhymes. The furniture alone is worth a visit. I was... More

Very hard to find this building.We suggested to the 2 ladies there that no one we asked,even locals just 100 yards away,knew where the house is.They agreed signage is poor...which might explain why we were the only people there!
