Anderson Estate contains a historic cemetery that was used by the original family (the ‘Wells’) who owned Anderson Estate and the surrounding properties. Over the years, the cemetery became overgrown with vegetation and the boundary fence suffered damage due to falling trees. We intend to restore and beautify the cemetery in the years ahead.
We have a number of plants that are not suited to the colder months that we get here in Knoxville. To combat that issues it was decided that we needed a greenhouse which we started mid 2015. The project dragged out longer than expected but we got there in the end. It worked very well at keeping the plants warm though the remaining colder periods but we have been unable to keep it cool enough through summer.
A nice picnic area is located off the lower front trail. Unfortunately it was always hidden from the main garden area and because of this, we feel it has never been as utilized as much as it could be. To address this, we have decided to add another trail with stairs directly to the picnic area. Hopefully this will make it far more accessible.
