Mabry Hazen hosts holiday tours

Knoxville’s Mabry-Hazen House invites the public to enjoy history and the holidays with a tour through the historic site. Rooms and other areas will be decorated by well known Knoxville decorators as well as volunteers and museum staff.

Christmas

The event is free of charge and light refreshments will be served. Christmas Tours are scheduled for Saturday, December 13, 2014 from 5-8pm and Sunday, December 14, from 2-5pm.

Built in 1858, The Mabry-Hazen House is strategically located on the highest hill east of downtown Knoxville with spacious views in all directions. The home was occupied and defended by both armies during the Civil War. It housed three generations of the same family for 130 years; the museum showcases one of the largest original family collections in America.

Attendance and donations will help support the museum’s mission to preserve and educate the public about an important part of East Tennessee history.
