Worsham Residence

The Worsham house is one of the most elaborate of BarberMcMurry's residential designs.

The walls are faced with honey-colored field stone and the roof is of slate. The doorway, window, and chimney details are notable, closely patterned on elements of the English Tudor period. The chimney in particular is one of the most recognizable elements of the well-known Kingston Pike residence, with a unique styling that is almost sculptural.

The owner of the home was an early contractor in Knoxville, who frequently partnered with BarberMcMurry, including construction of Church Street United Methodist Church.

Completion Date: 1925

Location: Knoxville, Tennessee
