Mabry-Hazen House will host a celebration and fundraiser for the 160th anniversary of the antebellum Italianate home. Dr. Carroll Van West, state historian of Tennessee and the director of the Center for Historic Preservation at Middle Tennessee State University, will be the featured speaker. 

The Mabry-Hazen House Museum, listed on the National Register of Historic Places, is located atop Mabry's Hill in Knoxville, Tennessee. Built in 1858, three generations of the same family resided in the Italianate-style home overlooking downtown Knoxville, the Tennessee River, and Great Smoky Mountains. The museum showcases one of the largest original family collection in America with over 2,000 original artifacts on display. Furnished and decorated in the style of several decades, Mabry-Hazen gives a rare view into 130 years of Knoxville history.  Learn about the origins of Knoxville's iconic Market Square, the bitter divisions of the Civil War, the infamous 1882 Gunfight on Gay Street, a mountain city in the New South, the scandalous 1934 breach of promise and seduction trial, and  much more through the rich, colorful lives of the Mabry and Hazen families.
