|The Haunted Historic Glenmore Mansion, Jefferson City|
A true Victorian treasure, Glenmore Mansion was completed in 1869. In February, 1970, the 101-year-old house and surrounding property were saved from the auction block and developer's bulldozer when the heirs of Milton Preston Jarnagin, Sr., presented the site to the Jefferson County Chapter of the Association for the Preservation of Tennessee Antiquities (APTA).
Jarnagin acquired the house from Branner's heirs. APTA's Jefferson County Chapter, now known as Glenmore Chapter, manages the property as a house museum open to the public.
Glenmore Mansion is located in a very historic part of East Tennessee. The house and grounds are listed in the National Register of Historic Places. John Roper Branner, the builder, was President of the East Tennessee, Virginia & Georgia Railroad (now part of the Norfolk-Southern line). Both he and his wife had deep roots in Jefferson County.
Each year, thousands of people from all over the U. S. and several foreign countries visit Glenmore. The house sits on a hill in the eastern part of Jefferson City on a four-acre, pie-shaped piece of land at the intersection of Old Andrew Johnson Highway (U. S. 11-E) and Chucky Pike.
