The home of William Blount, original territorial Governor and signer of the US Constitution, is a must-see if you are near Knoxville. Located downtown, this small home and intact outbuildings provides a view into the life of an American icon and early Tennessee history. The...More

If you can’t make the Tennessee History Museum, you can get a good summation from the history of this house with its founding in the late 1700’s. A prize to have survived.

Went on Halloween Eve on a ghost tour. Was fantastic. Started in visitor center for an informative non formal question answer about history. Then went on tour, using flashlights, through the mansion hearing the history and what went on in the different rooms. A great...More

We can only recommend this "museum" when it's 60 degrees or colder. The visitor center, with its movies, is comfortable and interesting. Also the tour with the docent is interesting, but the oppressive heat made the visit less than enjoyable. Also, lots of trip hazards;...More

We had a lovely private tour of about 20 minutes. It was worth the visit. No you cannot walk to them and it would be a lot to do in one day.
