It featuring walking trails, display gardens, unique & historic horticulture and over two miles of distinctive stone walls and timeless buildings. The site has potential significance for the cultural and horticultural history of Knoxville as well as historical data from Civil War and Native American activity on this property.

Parking is difficult if you are pulling a small trailer. This is in a very historic and tight neighborhood- small roads and hilly- so if you're traveling through access is not easy. It looks very interesting though.
