About Historic Westwood

 

Historic Westwood was built in East Tennessee as a “wedding promise” in 1890 by John Edwin Lutz and his wife, Ann Adelia Armstrong Lutz. Originally sited on 12 acres along Kingston Pike, it was designed by notable architects Baumann Brothers in the grand Richardsonian Romanesque style so popular in the late 19th century. Westwood is one of Knoxville’s treasured houses known as “The Three Sisters,” which also includes Crescent Bend and Bleak House. Adelia Lutz was the first professional female artist not only in Knoxville, but in all of Tennessee. The house is filled with her beautiful hand-painted decorative frescos.
