Glenmore Mansion is Jefferson County’s only public house museum. Built by John Roper Branner in 1868, it is one of the southeast’s best examples of a second empire architecture still standing today.
In 2018, Glenmore Mansion celebrated the 150th anniversary of its Construction. Throughout its life, it has seen the history of Mossy Creek (Jefferson City) unfold. Whereas the town itself has changed…its people, its buildings, its character, its name…Glenmore has remained a consistent landmark and representation of the original town of Mossy Creek, Tennessee.
Today, Glenmore engages the community through regular seasonal tours along with special events like the Spring Garden Market and the Christmas Candlelight Tours.
If you’re looking for a location to hold any sort of event, regardless of the size, Glenmore Mansion is an ideal setting. Luncheons, baby and wedding showers, birthday and anniversary celebrations, even family reunions work quite well at Glenmore. Year-round, Glenmore Mansion is a popular location for both indoor and outdoor weddings.
