About Historic Westwood

    Historic Westwood was built as a “wedding promise” in 1890 by John Edwin Lutz and his wife, Ann Adelia Armstrong Lutz. Originally on 12 acres, it was designed by notable architects Baumann Brothers in the grand Richardsonian Romanesque style so popular in the late 19th century. Westwood is one of the treasured houses known as “The Three Sisters,” which includes historic Crescent Bend and Bleak House.

    Westwood is an impressive Queen Anne style home. It was the residence and studio of artist Adelia Armstrong Lutz (1859- 1931) and her husband John Lutz, and it remained in the Lutz family until 2009. Adelia Lutz was Tennessee’s first professional female painter.

    Historic Preservation inducted Historic Westwood into their prestigious Historic Artists’ Homes and Studios (HAHS) program. Only 55 homes in the U.S. have received this distinction and Historic Westwood is the only home in the state of Tennessee to be recognized by HAHS.
