About Crescent Bend House & Garden

    Crescent Bend is a historic home at 2728 Kingston Pike in Knoxville, Tennessee. The building is known as Crescent Bend because of its location on a bend of the Tennessee River.

    Beginning in 1832, Drury Paine Armstrong (1799-1856) established a gentleman’s farm and house for his wife and family just west of downtown Knoxville. He named the farm “Crescent Bend” for the commanding view of a majestic crescent bend of the Holston River, now called the Tennessee River. After a succession of ownership, The Toms Foundation restored the house to it's original splendor, with antique displays and tiered gardens.

    The old plantation house offers a peek into antebellum life in Knoxville. Some of the furnishing are original to the house, but all the furniture and decor are authentic to the period. The terraced grounds slope down to the Tennessee River are beautiful -- especially in Spring with the tulips in bloom -- and the house can be used as a lovely venue for weddings and parties.
