If you love turn-of the-century styles, homes, art, etc., you will enjoy the Knott House Museum!! Everything in the home is just as the Knott family left it. A rare glimpes into the lives of some very interesting people. Especially the wife and mother, Luella....More

A small museum with some artifacts of history. Interesting the house was occupied after the Civil War. Very close to the Capitol, once occupied by a high ranking State of Florida official. Known as the House That Rhymes due to Mrs. Knott's love of verse....More

Beautiful mansion on the corner with the families original belongings on display. Lewella’s clever poems were so fun to read while appreciating all of the antiques

The Knott House now is part of the state museum system. Tours are offered at 1,2, and 3 several days during the week. Check the schedule. The tour takes about one hour. It provides a nice perspective on early Tallahassee and a family that has...More

There are plenty of interesting and entertaining things to see inside. Just enjoy them. It is especially meaningful if you were a child in the 40's or 50's because many of the everyday objects will be familiar and yet seem so foreign to later generations...More

Knot house is an antebellum mansion with an interesting history. It is mostly furnished and decorated in the 1920s time period although there are many pieces that are much older. A guide takes you through the house and provides a historical narrative on the house,...More

I like old style Southern Buildings, This is one of them. The outside is really beautiful, the inside has a lot of artifacts, but not that interesting.
