1881 Italianate
Talbott, TN

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 sets 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 still regally sets 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. This is why 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 and the time when plantations were large and the owners well-to-do.
