Falcon Rest in McMinnville

All across the Volunteer State, monuments, homes and exhibits showcase Tennessee’s captivating history. Falcon Rest Mansion & Gardens in McMinnville is no exception, as one of very few historic mansions from the 1890s in the state open to the public.

The full-time historic house museum celebrates its 20th anniversary in 2013. Since opening in 1993, the site has developed a unique form of interactive history for tour groups where guests are part of the action. They also offer daily guided tours, lunch at the Tea Room and a Victorian Gift Shop, with more than 3,000 items that could have been in the mansion in the 1890s.

    I’m interested in knowing more about your facility. Antioch High School class of 1964 is looking for a location for our 50th. reunion next June. We expect no more than 100.
