The Knott House Museum Tour
Although its history can be traced as far back as the Civil War when the Emancipation Proclamation was announced, the historic house is now restored to its early 20th-century appearance when the house was occupied by politician William Knott and his wife, Luella. Mrs. Knott composed verses about many of the items in her home which are still on display today. For information about tours and special events, call 850.922.2459.
