KNOXVILLE, TN – Join the Historic Homes of Knoxville for a celebration of the city's 229th anniversary 5-7 p.m. Oct. 3 at James White’s Fort. The event is free and open to the public.

Celebrate with cupcakes, beer and wine, door prizes and live music. A special announcement will be made by members of the Historic Homes of Knoxville about the 225th Tennessee Statehood Series.

No reservations are required, however when the Fort has reached capacity (50 people), there may be a wait to enter. Donations are happily accepted and proceeds benefit the historic house museums.

Founded on Oc. 3, 1791, Knoxville has transformed from a frontier settlement to a grand mountain metropolis. The history of Knoxville is a vivid tale of the trials and triumphs of a growing town and a growing nation. It’s a wild and often surprising story told by the city’s historic homes.

The Historic Homes of Knoxville is an organization made up of 7 historic homes ranging from log cabins to frame houses to stately stone mansions. Each of these historic homes is a chapter of history unto itself. Together they exemplify and celebrate the continuing pioneering spirit that created Knoxville 229 years ago.
