KNOXVILLE, TN – April 4, 2019 – Celebrate one of the nature’s great performances and enjoy a three-course dinner April 27 on the front porch of Mabry-Hazen House. “Dinner in the Dogwoods” in partnership with Sister South Fine Food will treat guests to a cocktail hour in the historic dogwood grove followed by dinner.
Added to the Dogwood Trail in 2019, Mabry-Hazen House conserves over 80 flowering dogwood trees, and their flowery blooms will be in full force, adorning Mabry’s Hill in an array of whites, pinks, and greens. The site also conserves 32 species of trees including ancient southern magnolias, oaks and maples.
Sister South Fine Foods is operated by chef/owner Jessica Hammonds. She offered one of the earliest Community Supported Agriculture programs in Knoxville, sold Certified Naturally Grown produce at local farmers’ markets, and today, Sister South Fine Foods aims to educate the community about the ease and beauty of eating locally and seasonally.
Tickets are $65 per person, and include appetizers, a three-course dinner, and red and white wine. Vegetarian and gluten-free options are available by request.

About the Mabry-Hazen House Museum
The Mabry-Hazen House Museum, listed on the National Register of Historic Places, is located atop Mabry’s Hill in Knoxville, Tennessee. Built in 1858, three generations of the same family resided in the Italianate-style home overlooking downtown Knoxville, Tennessee River, and Great Smoky Mountains. The museum showcases one of the largest original family collection in America with over 2,000 original artifacts on display. Furnished and decorated in the style of several decades, Mabry-Hazen gives a rare view into 130 years of Knoxville history. Learn about the origins of Knoxville’s iconic Market Square, the bitter divisions of the Civil War, the infamous 1882 Gunfight on Gay Street, a mountain city in the New South, the scandalous 1934 breach of promise and seduction trial, and much more through the rich, colorful lives of the Mabry and Hazen families.
