  • This is really a hidden gem in Knoxville. It's a fantastic fort overlooking the Tennessee River. The history is packed into these walls. It is a great showcase of our past and how we used to live. It's always a great look into Knoxville's early days and how this fort eventually grew into the city we know and love.
  • I would definitely recommend you take an hour to go look around. Very nice, beautiful place to sit out on a bench and enjoy a nice day. The history is very present and it’s like jumping back in time :)
  • Incredible. You could feel the history so strongly. The gardens are readily maintained. You can't resist being overwhelmed by how small and vulnerable it feels despite the stout wall. The people there were available and happy to get you started and answer any questions but you didn't feel hounded and were left to tour freely inside and out of the wall.
  • Most interesting. Small. Doesn't take long to tour. Nice staff. Worth the visit.
  • Very cute place and very informative staff. A bit coyly for what they have but it was a nice historical place in Asheville.
