The Isaac Ziegler House was a historic home once located at 712 North 4th Street in Knoxville, Tennessee. Designed by prominent Knoxville catalog architect George Franklin Barber, it was listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and described as the most ornate Queen Anne-Romanesque house in Tennessee.[1]

The house was built in 1892. Demographic changes in Knoxville's inner city neighborhoods and the construction of the Magnolia Expressway across the street from the house contributed to the neglect and deterioration of the once impressive house. It was finally demolished by the city.
