This most excellent box is located at Blount Mansion in Knoxville, TN. From the corner of Main and Hill Streets, go east on Hill past the mansion and turn south as directed by signs into the free parking lot.

See the white house? See the informational sign and gate? OK, you're cookin' with gas! Enter the gate and from the X-walk, walk east (it might be north - I left my compass in the car). Under the hanger, not far from the lock, is a picture of Blount Mansion you have never see before.

As of May 1, 2007, the Blount Mansion is closed Mondays. It is open Tues-Sat from 9:30 - 4:00, and on Sundays from 1-4. The gate to "the gardens" outside the mansion should be open at these times. Public Restrooms are located in the adjacent, modern Visitors Center, where mementos and gifts are available for purchase. Very nice!
