Discover 1423 Branson Avenue—a house built for famed Knoxville artist Lloyd Branson, nearly lost to history. Knox Heritage purchased and renovated the long-neglected property after learning of its notable past from a surviving Branson cousin.

Lloyd Branson (1825–1925) was an American artist known for his portraits of Southern politicians and depictions of early East Tennessee history. He was a mentor to fellow Knoxville artist Catherine Wiley and is credited with discovering 21st Century modernist Beauford Delaney.

Join us for a casual supper celebrating this enigmatic Union County farm boy artist, Knoxville’s ‘native genius’ and, best of all, meet the lovely young family who now call this historic house their own.
