Major Eldad Cicero Camp built this home in 1885 using stone from his quarry near Lake City and carried here on the backs of mules and donkeys. The hand-carved mantles and trim were selected at the Paris World's Fair, and 22 different types of marble adorn the mansion. During World War II, Greystone was divided into apartments and tenants painted over the original wood mantles, paneling and trim. It remained in that condition until purchased and restored by WATE, Knoxville's ABC affiliate, in 1965.
