It was very meaningful since I was marrying into the Mabry family, the home is just as it was when Evelyn Hazen lived there. It is a very historical place and it was wonderful.

“Beautiful Historical House”
Reviewed February 23, 2012

The Mabry Hazen House is a little slice of heaven and a historical gem in Knoxville, TN. We called ahead and arranged this tour and were accommodated without a hitch. Our docent was extremely knowledgeable and it was the best $5 I've spent in a long time. The collection in one of the largest in the US and many of the artifacts are original from three generations of the same family. We also visited the Bethel Cemetery which is down the road but on the original property of the Mabry-Hazen home. Don't miss this!

“This is a must for those who like history and authentic relics”
Reviewed December 9, 2011

This house is beautiful, light and airy, and full of the original furnishings. The setting is lovely, situated on a hill, overlooking Knoxville. Our docent was full of information and related her story with enthusiasm and feeling. The house has been occupied only by the original family and so, has authentic family possessions. Don't miss a visit to Mabry Hazen House.
