“Historic home, Longstreet's HQ”

Confederate Memorial Hall
Ranked #64 of 203 things to do in Knoxville
Attraction details
Reviewed September 3, 2013 via mobile

We visited this historic home in Knoxville as part of the Civil War Trails' 150th Anniversary Celebration. Our tour guide was a walking encyclopedia of Civil War knowledge and trivia. He brought out many lesser known facts regarding the Civil War and brought history to life.

The website needs to reflect the 2013 calendar. Otherwise, the trip was worth the go. It is a beautiful memorial and the tour guides are very knowledgeable.

A great history lesson for the whole family! Worth the time and effort to enjoy a few hours with your kids or someone else you love.

While the Bleak house is amazing, the tour guide gets far, far too involved with his version of the war and it's causes. One hour into the tour, we were still within 20ft of the door!! This tour guide is knowledgeable but needs to minimize the history lessons not pertinent to the battle and the houses involvement in the siege.

Too bad, you could spend hours admiring the architecture, the bullet holes, the view the snipers had etc. But instead you are re-educated in someones vision of history.

One of the prettiest houses in Knoxville. The gardens and the view of the Tennessee River are
stunning.
