Enter this historic house and step back in time. Preserved in its 1928 décor, the uniquely furnished home is a portrait in time reflecting the lives of state official William Knott and his wife Luella, a poet and temperance activist. Built in 1843, the Knott House holds many memories, from the announcement of the Emancipation Proclamation in 1865 to the whimsical poetry Mrs. Knott wrote for her furniture in the 1930s. Annual events include Romantic Readings in February, Emancipation Celebration in May, and a variety of other programs throughout the year.
Guided tours on the hour Wednesday through Friday, starting at 1 pm with the last tour at 3 pm. Hours: W-F 1-4 pm, Sa 10 am-4 pm; closed August.
