There is no admission charge for tours, but tickets are required. Tickets are available at the Visitor Center until 15 minutes past the hour of the tour.

The park/homestead may periodically be closed for staffing issues, training needs, and/or during inclement winter weather. Homestead tours may be suspended on days of dangerous heat indexes in the summer. Call the Visitor Center prior to your visit at 423-638-3551 to check conditions if there is doubt. The home will be closed at noon on Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year's eves and all day Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year's Day.
