The tour was interesting and informative. The docent was knowledgable and friendly. I would recommend doing the 7 historic homes of Knoxville.

We visited one evening when they were advertising a holiday event depicting pioneer life around the year-end. The parking lot had a trail of luminaries and a greeter with an old fashioned lantern to lead us to the main house. From there we toured the grounds to see the other buildings and were treated to the history by very knowledgeable... More

I drove to Ramsey house earlier in the day, which was about 30 minutes from my hotel. When I arrived there a sign was on the gift shop door explaining that the house was closed to tours because of an illness.

We toured Ramsey House for its annual candlelight tour...this place is incredible. Truly takes you back to 18th Tennessee...from the smells, the lighting, the decor, you are truly transformed. A must see for all tourist and locals in the area. Merry Christmas and thanks Ramsey House for making my Christmas spirit glow !!!!

There are several steps because it is too story and also a couple of steps to get inside. No photographs are allowed inside but... More

I stopped at Ramsey House not expecting very much. I was in for a pleasant surprise. First of all go there by way of John Sevier Highway and enjoy the pretty drive. The house itself is plain enough from the outside, but imposing in a stark way from the fact that it is entirely made of stone. The docent that... More
