Historic Ramsey House Reviews & Ratings
A beautiful and historic location just off the main road. It would be a great field trip for anyone. Ask about the ghost in the house! Nice gift shop with plenty of local handmade gifts including rings made from Tennessee quarters! 🙏✌😁👍
Interesting and important local historical site. Beautiful and well groomed grounds. Excellent and friendly staff.
The place is gorgeous. We had a guided visit which taught us all about the history of tge family which owned it and is a pilar family inthe history of Knoxville. It felt like going back in time. We enjoyed the park very much, our knowledgeable and kind guides as well as the little shop which offers a variety of books, locally made items, postcards and rareties such as sugar cones and tea bars to grate. A perfect moment out of time.
I've been through the house twice...but my grandfather lived here back in the 1930"s when it was a rental house,, he also told me about things he saw ... one of the things was a man wearing a cowboy hat in front yard looking in a window... when he pulled his old car in front yard the cowboy just faded away... this is just one event... and there was a rumour that some people were killed and thrown down in a well that used to be on the property...I loved the old kitchen with the dirt floor... and the old fire place they cooked in,, when I went through it on the tour I was told all the furniture was original as when Alexander Ramsey lived here.
Vintage baseball is played in the summer, hotdogs and hamburgers available for purchase, wholesome fun!
