Description

Due to the rain forecast for April 11, we have rescheduled this event.

On Thursday, April 25, 2024, we will host Dusk in the Dogwoods on Mabry’s Hill next to downtown Knoxville.

We will have a silent auction, open bar, heavy hors d’oeuvres, swing dancing, historic house tours, and more!

We are dedicated to raising $15,000 to undertake the continuing restoration of:

  • The original kitchen, enslaved quarters, and the butler’s pantry and office. We seek to interpret and exhibit the spaces inhabited by enslaved or domestic servants of the Mabry and Hazen families.
  • The plaster of the historic house interior walls. Over the years, the house has settled and shifted, and the walls need attention from a plaster specialist.

Mabry-Hazen House Members get a discount on event tickets!

Mabry-Hazen House

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. Furnished and decorated in the style of several decades, Mabry-Hazen gives a rare view into 130 years of Knoxville history. The museum showcases one of the largest original family collections in America with over 2,500 original artifacts on display. 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.
