So grateful to have stumbled on to this jewel on the hill. So rich in history, one you can see, touch and smell not just read about. The tour guides friendship, knowledge and hospitality is a powerful asset to fully learning about the lives that were once here. 5 star in my book! Love it!
Glenmore Mansion is a beautiful Victorian home that was owned by one of the founders of Jefferson City Tennessee. The original owner also owned most of the land in town, was a part of the railroad, and owned a mill. He never got to enjoy his Mansion house. It was sold to the Jarnigan family and they lived in it for a very long time. Now the house is a museum and features lots of Victorian articles as well as a significant amount of original articles from the house. The tour is very informative and my daughter seemed to enjoy it quite a bit. Gorgeous house.
A absolutely beautiful architectural design of handmade brick. A man's vision of a home he wanted to build for his wife and family. A millionaire by today's standards but money can't buy you health or happiness. He died before the home was completed his wife only lived in the home for 13 years. The 5 story 27 room mansion has thankfully been saved and refurbished. Check website for hours and events.
We waited for about 15 minutes for the previous tour to end. Although. The is no air conditioning for most of the mansion there is air in the rooms reserved for events. It is historically accurate and the docent was very knowledgeable. Well worth the time spent. There is an admission fee of $10 and 5 for students.
Beautiful mansion. Furnished beautifully. Our tour guide was very nice and knew a lot about the history of the family . Great time, glad I went. 5 people in our tour. We even got to go into the attic!
