When visiting the 1941 John Fanz Staub-designed home and the 1939 BarberMcMurry-designed stable, guests will engage in cultural programming produced by Knoxville’s cultural institutions, including tours, lectures, small exhibitions, and intimate performances. Partners include the Knoxville Museum of Art, Knoxville Symphony Orchestra, Knoxville Opera, Knoxville Garden Club, Big Ears, Beck Cultural Exchange Center, Knox Heritage, East Tennessee Historical Society, and Knoxville History Project. The programming schedule will be created to enrich the City of Knoxville’s cultural life and preserve the historic buildings and grounds.
