We had a great time! I went there once with my husband (we just did the tour and gift shop) and I went there again with the Red Hatters. We took in the show and had a delicious luncheon. I would recomend this to anyone. The history was pleasantly presented and the food was good. Mr. & Mrs. McGlothin were dressed in costume, seemed to enjoy what they were doing, and did a good job! We were left to tour the ground, the gift shop, and the mansion by ourselves.

Message from Falcon Rest Mansion & Gardens

Tour the Victorian mansion where history is fun. It was built in 1896 by 'Gorilla Pants' manufacturer Clay Faulkner, who promised his wife "the grandest mansion in Tennessee" if she would move near his woolen mill. Called "Tennessee's Biltmore" by PBS, Falcon Rest had all the "modern conveniences" - electric lights, indoor plumbing, central heat and more. Today, it is filled with museum-quality Victorian antiques, and some say it's presided over by a friendly ghost - perhaps the proud builder himself. Falcon Rest's Victorian Gift Shop, with over 2,000 items that could have been in the mansion in the 1890s, has been called an attraction in itself. Delicious lunches are offered in the Tea Room for walk-ins daily. Special interactive, history-based entertainment shows with meals and mansion tours are available for tour groups by reservation. Located in McMinnville, "the nursery capital of the world," halfway between Nashville and Chattanooga.
