Program Description

Event Details

Relive the days when Knoxville was wilder than the West, with stories of family feuds, famous outlaws, and post-Civil War grudges making the downtown streets an exciting but sometimes dangerous place to be. Guide and storyteller Laura Still will take you back to the days when our peaceful city streets could be deadlier than the OK Corral.

Be prepared to walk for up to 90 minutes. The tour will take place in light rain or shine. 

Please note: This tour will leave from the front steps of the East Tennessee History Center.
