Their peak month for visitors and they were closed for renovation. What an incredible amount of stupidity on their part.
Just moved to area, so bought the inclusive ticket at the visitors center. The Blount Mansion was my first place to visit.

Enjoyed a tour of the Blount Mansion. The tour guide is quite knowledgable. Also greatly enjoyed the Civil War video in the upstairs of the office building. The gentleman there was a wealth of information about the Civil War.This is a "must" for any Civil War buff! Blount was a Governor of Tennessee and also signed the Constitution of Tennessee.
