The Blount Mansion is beautifully decorated with antiques. It's a great place to visit if you are wanting some history and Appalachian culture in your visit to Knoxville.

The folks at the visitor center are very nice and well informed on the history of the place. For $7 you watch a short film which is very interesting and see the small museum. You are then given a tour of the house and grounds. I think many times we are too used to seeing houses crammed full of stuff,... More

The best thing about Blount Mansion is the fact that it is right in the middle of downtown, so everyone has access to it on a daily basis. It's not far away in the country where no one will see it, but right in the middle of an always active environment, where you can visit it while there doing other... More

We didn't get a chance to take the tour, but it was nice walking the grounds and taking pictures of the mansion itself. There are nice views of the river and the bridge from the grounds, and that's a bonus. Should visit if you happen to be in Knoxville.

We toured the home with a group from our woodworkers conference. Most of us would have loved to see more actual pieces from the Blount Family or period pieces. We did have a chance to roam around to inspect different rooms in the home but just not enough items to really get a good understanding of the Blount family. The... More

The tour guide was very knowledgeable. Although the property was being refurbished & had little frnishings in it, she was able to bring the home to life. She was also able to answer our questions. You could tell that she loved what she did. Also she was a volunteer. The gardens were very nice. It was a great history lesson.... More

Being in the old house evokes the spirit of the early days of our country after the signing of the Constitution. The garden designed by Alden Hopkins in the late 1950s is a local treasure. Interesting views of the Tennessee River, the 19th century Gay Street Bridge and a recently restored vintage sign advertising JFG coffee. A good place to... More
