Historic Westwood is located at 3425 Kingston Pike and was built as a “wedding promise” in 1890 by John Edwin Lutz and his wife, Ann Adelia Armstrong Lutz.


Originally sited on 12 acres along Kingston Pike, it was designed by notable architects Baumann Brothers in the grand Richardsonian Romanesque style. Adelia Lutz was Tennessee’s first professional female painter and was built with an art studio, which today is filled with her artwork. Westwood is one of the treasured houses known as “The Three Sisters,” which also includes Crescent Bend and Bleak House.
