Glenmore Mansion

Glenmore Mansion

Located in Jefferson City, TN (In Jefferson County, the town used to be called Mossy Creek) the Glenmore Mansion was built in 1869 to be the home of John Roper Branner. John Branner died before the house was completed, and for a few years his brother Joseph ran the Branner Institute for Young Ladies here. In 1882, the home was sold to the Jarnagin family. Glenmore was the name of Milton Jarnagin's first son, who died as a baby.

In 1970, the mansion was aquired by a local historical preservation group.

The mansion is located along the old Andrew Johnson Highway. The fine example of Victorian Architecture in a Second Empire style was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1973.
