Our family enjoyed our tour of the Mabry Hazen House. It was once used as a headquarters by the Union army during the civil war. The family history if intriguing. Because a member of the family lived in the house late into the 20th century, the items in the house originally belonged to the family. They are not replicas or... More

Old homes and history are not my strength, BUT from local intrigue...hearsay leading to an old fashioned duel among high society southern gentlemen...to the mentality of the eastern Tennesseans toward to secession issue, the guide (wish I could remember his name!) was an excellent story teller and answered every one of my questions to my complete satisfaction.

If you are a Civil War buff this is a "must see" and if you are really lucky your Docent will be Karen! Our guide, Karen was in full period dress and seemed completely entertained telling us the best tales that are part of the history of the home even though I am sure she has related them hundreds of...

The home and surrounding grounds are very beautiful and intriguing. The views from the hilltop surrounding the property are amazing as well. What I enjoyed most was the antiques and furnishings that are not only varied but unique. The tour guide was most informative and interested in answering questions and engaging in discussions about the historical aspect of this much... More

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
