Learn the secrets ...

Experience the mysteries ...

See the beauty ...

Guided tours of Falcon Rest Mansion bring the Clay Faulkner family and the 1890s to life for visitors of all ages.

There's something for everyone ...

  • The Victorian mansion called "Tennessee's Biltmore" by PBS. Mr. Faulkner's obituary called him a mechanical genius, so it's easy to understand why his mansion was equipped with "all the modern conveniences of a model city residence."
  • Museum quality Victorian antiques in every room
  • Gardens reflecting the bounty of "the nursery capital of the world"
  • A restoration that so revived a near-derelict old building that it won the National Trust for Historic Preservations's "Great American Home Award" -- an inspiration to visitors who are redoing old homes themselves
  • Intriguing accounts of experiences that hint Falcon Rest might be inhabited by a friendly ghost
  • Real stories about real people associated with the mansion over the years, from Mr. Faulkner (the "secret soldier" of the Civil War) and his colorful family, through the hospital days and its dedicated restoration

It all adds up to make Falcon Rest

the Victorian mansion where history is fun.
