Originally built in 1843, this historic house was preserved in its 1928 décor and reflects the lives of state official William Knott and his wife. Brig. Gen. Edward Moody McCook arrived in Tallahassee on May 10, 1865, arriving from Macon with two regiments of Union cavalry. After setting up headquarters at the present-day Knott House, he announced President Lincoln's Emancipation Proclamation on May 20, 1865. The event is reenacted on the steps of the house annually.
