Built in 1868, Glenmore Mansion is one of the southeast's best examples of a second empire architecture still standing today. The mansion can be admired up close through seasonal tours and venue rentals. It's viewed as both a venue for enjoyment and educational resource studied by architects, engineers, preservationists, builders and other craftsmen. 

And now for a brief history lesson: Only two families have ever owned and lived in the home which are the Branners and Jarnagins. John Branner, who built the home, was a businessman and investor who brought the railroad to Mossy Creek. Unfortunately, Branner didn't live to see the completion of the mansion but his wife Deborah kept it up for 13 years. Then Milton Jarnagin purchased the mansion in 1882. He was a successful lawyer heavily involved in community business. The home stayed in the family for more than 50 years after Milton's son Frank inherited it. Glenmore Mansion was then donated to the State Association for the Preservation of Tennessee Antiquities and the doors were opened to the public in 1972. 

Glenmore is now protected by the Glenmore preservation Society, which is dedicated to maintaining the grounds and structure. You can catch special events like the Spring Garden Market and Christmas Candlelight Tours. Regular tour season runs from the first Sunday in May to the last Sunday in October. It's also available as a venue to rent year-round. It's become popular for both indoor and outdoor events such as weddings, birthdays, anniversaries, reunions, school field trips and more.
