Historic Ramsey House(865) 546-0745

Hours & Admissions

In an abundance of caution and based on the recommendation of the CDC and other government agencies to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus), Historic Ramsey House will be closed to the public effective March 18, 2020, and will remain closed until March 31, 2020, when we will reevaluate, based on the current recommendations. 

During the interim, our staff will take this opportunity to continue to work diligently on upcoming projects and other administrative needs. 

As we are committed to educating the public on the Ramsey family and the Forks of the River community, we will aim to bring that history to you and your family during these uncertain times. Please keep an eye out on our social media pages, as we upload new content and introduce live stream tours. 

We hope that you and your family stay healthy and safe, and we sincerely thank you for your continued support. If you have any questions or concerns, please call us at 865-546-0745 or email us at info@ramseyhouse.org.
