Built as a "wedding promise" in 1890 by John Edwin Lutz for his wife, Ann Adelia Armstrong Lutz, and designed by notable architects Baumann Brothers, Historic Westwood reflects the grand Richardsonian Romanesque style popular in the late 19th century.
Adelia Lutz was a prominent local artist and descendant of the Armstrong family, having grown up in nearby Bleak House and near her grandfather's house, Crescent Bend. Visitors enjoy free tours by trained volunteer docents and can experience the architecture of the home, a gallery of Adelia's art, and gardens on the property. Historic Westwood also offers a beautiful and unique setting for private events in Knoxville, Tennessee.
