225th Statehood Day Celebration

June 1 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

 

Blount Mansion, the birthplace of Tennessee, is proud to partner with our fellow Knoxville house museums and the City of Knoxville to host a special birthday party on June 1st, 2020—the 225th anniversary of Tennessee’s admission to the union as our nation’s sixteen state. We are planning a short parade from James White’s Fort to Blount Mansion, followed by birthday cake and special activities. Participants will have the opportunity to take quill pen in hand and sign their own names on parchment atop the restored Statehood Desk in Governor Blount’s office! This celebration will be the highlight of a series of events which are being planned in conjunction with our community partners.
