After hours tour returns to Mabry-Hazen House

Patrick HollisArts 865, Inside 640

Mabry-Hazen House is hosting its first Night at the Museum of 2021 on Wednesday, March 10, from 6-9 p.m. Attend for a chance to visit the house museum after-hours on a weekday and drink up a little history. Explore the 1858 historic house in an entirely different light as twilight falls upon Mabry’s Hill, watch the sun set behind Sharp’s Ridge and North Knoxville flicker alight, all while enjoying drinks provided by a local brewery.

The historic home will be open for self-guided tours (at limited capacity), and there will be behind-the-scenes access to the walkout basement at 7:30 p.m. Mabry-Hazen House also will continue its history series sharing an artifact or objects that normally are not on display.

Socially distanced outdoor seating areas will be set-up on the front porch and lawn for groups to safely enjoy the site in a casual atmosphere. A fire pit and corn hole game will be available. Guests are encouraged to bundle up and bring their games, stories, blankets, and camp chairs.

Tickets are $10 per adult, and visitors under 16 are admitted free. Each purchased ticket includes two adult beverages, and additional drinks are $5. A small processing fee is applied to tickets purchased online.

Light refreshments will be available for purchase. All proceeds benefit Mabry-Hazen House.

Tickets are limited and some may be available at the door. Purchase tickets here, and more information is available here.

Patrick Hollis is executive director of Mabry-Hazen House
