Confederate Memorial Hall, Knoxville

Confederate Memorial Hall, Knoxville (must see)

The Confederate Memorial Hall is a Tuscan style mansion on the banks of the Tennessee River. Built in the 1850s, this antebellum mansion was once owned by the Armstrongs. Originally called Bleak House, from the Charles Dickens poem, it served as military headquarters during the siege of Knoxville in 1863. The United Daughters of the Confederacy purchased this house in 1959 and turned it into museum, housing a Confederate Memorial, chapter house and later a reception hall for weddings and other events. This elegant restored mansion is surrounded by lovely Roman gardens, beautifully designed fountains and ponds. Furnished with unique pieces, a wide assortment of paintings and a growing collection of old Southern Culture relics, tours are available Wednesday through Friday from 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm.
