Nestled in the center of Downtown Knoxville's government district, Blount Mansion offers history that is hard to miss. Here, among the towers of glass, steel and brick, sits a house - small by today's standards, but a mansion on the Tennessee frontier. Known by the Cherokee Indians as "the house with many eyes," Blount Mansion has watched American history parade through its rooms and on the streets outside. Step inside and experience "The Birthplace of Tennessee." Blount Mansion also features a modern Visitors Center with a gift shop, historical exhibits, and an art gallery featuring some of Eastern Tennessee's finest artists.
