Allandale Mansion is Kingsport’s White House. It is a magnificent location for any special day. Whether it is a wedding, civic event, family gathering, group meeting, community gathering or party…. Allandale is the place to be. Allandale was originally a private residence built for Mr. and Mrs. Harvey Brooks and designed by Allen Dryden, Sr. The original estate encompassed several hundred acres and Mr. Brooks was well known for the prize winning black angus cattle raised there. Upon his death in 1969, Mr. Brooks left his exquisite home, including many of its furnishings, to the City of Kingsport. Several outbuildings and 25 acres were also donated with the Mansion. Provisions of the donation stated that the house must be maintained in the same manner as when its former owners were alive and it must be devoted to public use. Today, Allandale holds true to the wishes of the Brooks family by providing an elegant gathering place and quality services to customers. In addition to the services provided through the City of Kingsport, Friends of Allandale support many endeavors to enrich Allandale. Together they are committed to making sure Allandale’s rich history is preserved and that this community facility will always be a source of great pride for Kingsport.
