Luella Pugh Knott

temperance activist
Luella Pugh Knott

Born in North Carolina, Luella Pugh Knott (1871–1965) wrote and played music, penned poetry, and fought for temperance. In 1898, she and her husband, William Knott, moved to Tallahassee where she became a temperance leader. She also wrote brief poems on note cards about some of the furnishings in her home. Today, the Knott House, now a museum on Park Avenue, is known as “The House that Rhymes.”
