The ROOSTER may crow but the HEN delivers the goods. 


PIONEER HOUSE is a letterpress printmaking studio, gallery & honky tonk vintage shop in downtown Knoxville, TN with a mini studio in New Orleans. The in-house collection of amazing antique wood type, decorative lead type & printable ornaments are mixed with original & vintage imagery carved into wood or linoleum & hand printed on reconditioned antique printing presses. 

The Pioneer House brand paper goods are an eclectic mix of hand pulled prints, sewn paper art, posters, greeting cards, calendars & accessories. You will also find mixed media art supplies, unique honky tonk clothing & hillbilly vintage inside the exhibition space. We often host special events in the store - art openings, intimate music performances, Pioneer House-parties & local old time jams & the occasional square dance. Come on by for a visit.
