Alfred Buffat Homestead

The Alfred Buffat Homestead is a historic home with several surviving outbuildings located on Love Creek Road in Knoxville, Tennessee. It is also known as The Maples.

Alfred Buffat was a French-Swiss immigrant. He built the first story of The Maples in 1867 for his bride. A second story was added three years later. The house has wood siding, with a modest front porch. The property originally included a grist mill and other buildings. In addition to the main house, the miller's cottage, smokehouses, wash house, barns and utility buildings are still standing.

The house is a private residence, and is not open to the public.
