Built in 1843, this historical home is the former residence of state official William Knott and his wife, Luella. In 1865 the home served as temporary Union Headquarters and it is where the Emancipation Proclamation was read in Florida, on the front steps. Restored to its 1928 grandeur, the home is now a museum.
