What I enjoyed most was the antiques and furnishings that are not only varied but unique.

This health saw the Civil War from both sides, wealth and failure, a scandal of betrayal and revenge and generations of living. Carefully restored and re-created, you can see life in Knoxville of the 19th C and a look into a family that couldn't find peace. All this and lovely views. Fine guides. Take time to readh the displays.

I went with a group of women and enjoyed the tour and a tea luncheon on the porch. While the collections of glassware and furnishings are interesting, I really enjoyed the view and the grounds. The tour guide is very enthusiastic and makes the visit fascinating with stories of the family who lived here and of its Civil War history.... More

The house is amazing in the fact that so much of the furnishings are original. The exterior has been well restored. The Civil War history and the story of Evelyn Hazen just add to the historical significance. Calvin Chapelle, Executive Director, was our tour guide and he has a wonderful command of the history and enthusiasm for the property. Knoxville... More

The Mabry Hazen house tour provided a glimpse into the life of the fascinating family who lived here for over 100 years. In addition to enjoying the lovely original antiques which furnish the house, we were also fascinated by incredible tales of wealth, loss of wealth, gunfights, love, betrayal and much more.

The Mabry Hazen House in Knoxville, TN has only had several generations, but only two familes to live within its' walls since it was built just before the Civil War in 1858.
