About Blount Mansion

    Blount Mansion was the home and capitol of the first and only governor of the Southwest Territory, William Blount, his family, and his slaves. Blount was a signer of the U.S. Constitution and played a pivotal role in Tennessee becoming the sixteenth state.

    William Blount, appointed by President George Washington to govern the Southwest Territory, which Blount shepherded into admission to the union as our nation’s sixteenth state, Tennessee.

    In addition to a family home, this fine wood frame dwelling also served as the territorial capital. Blount Mansion is Knoxville, Tennessee’s only National Historic Landmark and the city’s oldest operating museum, opening in 1926.

    Today, Blount Mansion’s gardens are a green oasis tucked between the steel and glass office towers of downtown Knoxville—in fact, we boast the only public garden in the city’s center.
