The Burn Memorial

The Suffrage Coalition raised more than $500,000 to build what is now one of the state's most prized landmarks - The Burn Memorial.  Located just steps from the Tennessee Woman Suffrage Memorial on Gay Street in downtown Knoxville, it honors the legacy of Representative Harry T. Burn and his mother, Febb whose letter to her son changed the course of American politics.

More challenges to our efforts to celebrate the Centennial and Centennial Plus of women’s right to vote. We are committed to celebrating safely and ask you to join us in that effort. Outdoor events will continue as planned, but mask wearing may be requested if the tour groups are especially large. Slide shows will have limited seating to allow social distancing. Mask wearing is expected. Febb Burn Banquet will go on, but all those attending in person must be fully vaccinated. Masking will be necessary except when seated at your table or actively eating or drinking. We are diligently pursuing a virtual option for those who have not yet or cannot get vaccinated. Please check this site periodically as this policy may be updated as necessary.
