Study Tours

Occasionally, Knox Heritage will create travel experiences for our members who want to visit and learn about historic places across the country and around the globe. It is our hope they will return to East Tennessee and put their experiences to work preserving the heritage of our region.

In 2014 we traveled to Cuba to see the architectural and cultural riches of this Caribbean jewel. Our group received behind-the-scenes tours from architects and preservation specialists not normally afforded to others visiting the island.

For 2015, we chose the Eternal City of Rome as our study destination. In keeping with our goal to get in places off-the-beaten-path, we made arrangements with a tour company that specialized in art and architecture travel.  Our insider guide ensured we were able to experience must-see art and architecture, the best restaurants, fine local shops and the people and culture that make Rome such an unforgettable place.

While there are no tours currently scheduled, we have considered the following places for upcoming trips: Charleston, SC, Savannah, GA, Newport, RI, and Charlottesville, VA. If you have an interest in participating in a future tour, please let us know at
