Mission Statement

It is the mission of the Knott House Museum to preserve, collect, and interpret the house and its contents as they relate to the history of Tallahassee, Leon County, and the State of Florida in perpetuity for the people of Florida.

Description

Preserved in its 1928 decor, this 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.
