TOUR THE VICTORIAN MANSION WHERE HISTORY IS FUN! Built in 1896 by 'Gorilla Pants' manufacturer Clay Faulkner, Falcon Rest has been called 'Tennessee's Biltmore' by PBS. Faulkner's mansion 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. Guided mansion tours, shopping, and lunch in the Victorian Tea Room offered 9 to 5 (central time) daily year round. Special meals and entertainment available for tour groups by reservation. Halfway between Chattanooga and Nashville.
