The Tarr House was built in 1881 by James Archibald Tarr to celebrate the birth of his son Herd (Hurd) Lonas Tarr MD. The Tarr House (as it is locally called) is an Italianate 3800 square foot mansion located about 3 miles NW of Jefferson City. The structure consists of handmade brick from the Jefferson City brick yard. The walls are 14 inches thick. The home sits on a beautiful tract of land (approx. 15 acres) consisting of views of the Great Smoky Mountains and overlooking Jefferson City and the Old A.J. Highway (once the main roadway to Knoxville and directly across from the Fairview Mansion built in 1851). Of the four remaining original mansions along this route, the Tarr House sits regally surrounded by an undeveloped 600 acres of land recently donated to the National Land Conservancy; therefore, the Tarr House will retain its rural character into the future. The mansion is in consideration for placement on the National Register of Historic Sites. Sitting on the porch one can be transported back to 1881 just by closing your eyes. You can imagine sipping a mint julep waiting for the carriages to bring your guests for an evening of fun and entertainment. Horseback riding through the countryside and a nap on a lazy afternoon. Enjoy life in the country and transport yourself back to a simpler time. See for further information.
