The year 2016 is going to be a big year for James White’s Fort. We have just added a schedule of events for 2016 to our website and Facebook calendars.

This year marks the 220th Anniversary of the State of Tennessee and the 225th Anniversary of the City of Knoxville…that is a lot to celebrate! There will be signature events and special programming this year by local museums and historic homes all over the city. Click Visit Knoxville 225 for more information on the City of Knoxville celebrations.

When James White partitioned part of his land in October 1791 to establish the town that would eventually become Knoxville, we are sure he had no idea how amazing the city would turn out to be 225 years later.

We hope to see you at the Fort soon, whether for one of these celebrations or any of the other events we have planned this year!
