We were going to visit Knoxville and decided to visit the Confederate Memorial Hall/Bleak House. Their days and hours are very limited so we decided to call. We spoke directly to a woman (phone number listed on the website) who assured us that it would be open at 1PM. We drove there at that time and waited. NO ONE SHOWED... More

We were married here in October of 2015 and we really enjoyed the home. There are definitely a lot of fixing up projects on the to-do list here but the organization that runs the house really doesn't seem to mind the wear and tear. We never had a problem setting appointments or getting things done but this may have more... More

Knoxville is rich in history, particularly that of the Civil War. A soldier in the turret of Bleak House, as it is also known, shot and killed a Union soldier on the present site of Fort Sanders Manor. Confederate Hall was a companion home to the present day Armstrong-Lockett house, just down the street. It has loads of historical artifacts... More

This gorgeous home was built in 1858 and was used by General James Longstreet, CSA as his headquarters during the Siege of Knoxville in November/December 1863. Be sure to call ahead to ensure that a tour guide is available - you do not want to miss this gorgeous historic site.

I loved the history of the house, but it was hard to see and enjoy. If the one docent is leading a group through, no one will come to the locked door, and the tours take about an hour. In addition, no photos are allowed inside. I got the feeling the house is run more as an event and wedding... More

The place is not bad and has that historical flare. Some good points of learning about the Civil War in Knoxville guides informative. I also believe they cater a lot to weddings and receptions so in saying that I believe it could be open on weekends when there are no receptions. I believe they more adapt to being a reception...

Called Monday 6/30 about visiting The Bleak House. I was told by a nice young gentle that the house would be open today, Thursday, 07/03. He advised me that I probably should be there by 1:00 so that I would have time to get to Pigeon Forge for a show that we were going too. We made our plans drove... More

Absolutly one of best tours ever! The guides are some of the most knowledgeable friendly people we have met on this trip. Wonderfully kept home with one heck of a history, even has the cannon ball and bullet holes left in the walls!
