Celebrate the Holiday Season at Historic Westwood

Historic Westwood is one of Knoxville’s premier historic house experiences. Celebrate the holidays in grand style at the beautiful former residence of artist Ann Adelia Armstrong Lutz.

Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the 1890 home is a rare example of the Queen Anne and Richardsonian Romanesque architectural styles. Today, visitors can enjoy tours led by trained volunteer docents and can experience Gilded-Age architecture and interiors, a large collection of original art by Adelia Lutz, and a stunning collection of antique slag glass lamps from the Coates collection. Tours are provided on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10 am to 4 pm and Saturdays from 10 am to 2 pm.

On Sunday, December 5, Historic Westwood will open its doors for the annual Holiday Home Tour. The grand home will be filled with beautiful holiday decorations, including a tree featuring handmade Victorian ornaments created by the Knoxville Chapter of the Embroiderers Guild of America. Experience docent-led house tours, holiday music, and refreshments. Santa will be stopping by between 2 and 5 pm. Tickets are $12 for adults and $8 for children (12 and under). A daytime tour is available from 1 to 5 pm, and a special candlelight tour is available from 6 to 8 pm. Tickets are available to purchase at www.knoxheritage.org.
