Historic Ramsey House: Summer Tours for Students


Category: History & heritage and Kids & family

Each summer, Historic Ramsey House offers free tours (Wednesday-Friday, 10 AM – 3 PM) to Knox, Jefferson and Sevier County students ages 6-17 with a student ID that are accompanied by a paying adult. There can be no more than two students for each adult. Admission can be paid upon arrival.

Ramsey House was built in 1797 by Knoxville’s first builder, Thomas Hope, for Francis Alexander Ramsey. The structure is significant for original interior and exterior architectural features and its period decorative art collection. The Ramsey Family was one of the first families to settle the Knoxville area. They played vital roles in developing civic, educational and cultural institutions.
