Crescent Bend House & Gardens2728 Kingston Pk., Knoxville, Tennessee 37919
Also known as the Armstrong- Lockett House, this 1834 home was once the centerpiece of a 600-acre farm. Today, it displays decorative arts from the 17th and 18th centuries, including 1832 French wallpaper intended for President Andrew Jackson's Nashville home, valued at $500,000. The superstitious Jacksons never hung it because it had been rescued from a burning barge. Stroll the grounds among the site's five magnificent fountains, nine beautiful terraces and formal Italian gardens.
