In 1962, John Glenn made the first orbit around the Earth, the Beatles recorded their first album, the Vietnam War was escalating, and Hamilton House was constructed in the middle of Sequoyah Hills. Designed by Chalfant of Chadds Ford, Pennsylvania, in collaboration with Good & Goodstein Architects (who also designed Thompson Boling Arena), and built by developer Earl Worsham, Hamilton House began life as an apartment complex with four buildings. In 1978, Robert Sheridan, a developer out of Chicago, converted the apartments into some of Knoxville’s first condominiums.
It was also during 1962 that Jackie Kennedy made historic preservation “cool” and led the first televised tour of the White House, showing America the results of its complete restoration. Jackie brought a touch of class to everything—to include her White House menus. Return to the days of “Camelot,” touring several unique and wonderful Hamilton House condos. Then gather in the central plaza to savor a recreation of the Kennedys’ first state dinner from May 3, 1961.
