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

The house itself is an important landmark in Florida history. Stunning architecture. It is furnished to the era of last permanent residents - early Twentieth Century. Disappointing.

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
