The Alex Haley Museum and Interpretive Center is a tribute location to Alexander Murray Palmer Haley. It opened as a museum and became a historical landmark in 1986. The museum's main attraction is Alex Haley's childhood home that was also the home of his grandparents, Will and Cynthia Palmer. Many parts of the house, including the stove and the floors, are original pieces from the 1920s. The newest addition to the site is the Interpretive Center which opened August 2010.

The Bartlett Museum, located in the Gotten House, contains historical displays that serve to help our citizens learn about the rich heritage of our community and its former citizens. In addition, the Museum is furnished with period furniture which allows it to retain that 'homey' feeling while one is visiting the building. Our vision and goal is and always has been to educate our citizens about the community's heritage and preserve that heritage for future generations.

Nestled in the center of Downtown Knoxville's government district, Blount Mansion offers history that is hard to miss. Here, among the towers of glass, steel and brick, sits a house - small by today's standards, but a mansion on the Tennessee frontier. Known by the Cherokee Indians as "the house with many eyes," Blount Mansion has watched American history parade through its rooms and on the streets outside. Step inside and share America's big stories with us.
