Casanova married Georgia Cox, the "Ghostess with the Mostess."Ghost at the Mansion -- Spooktaclular Fun at Falcon Rest

Falcon Rest Mansion had a reputation for being haunted long before it was restored and opened to the public in 1993. Strange events since that time have done nothing but confirm those suspicions. Footsteps heard on the staircase when no one was there … lights switched on and off … items found in different places than they had been left … strange orbs of light in photos … whistled Christmas tunes from an unseen caroler …

By popular demand, the stories have been brought together in a hilarious haunting called “Ghost at the Mansion.” Instead of the traditional Halloween “spook house,” however, its setting is a light-hearted ghost convention.

The beautiful Crimson Room of the Victorian Carriage House turns appropriately spooky as well, with darkened windows, dancing orbs of light, eerie music, and a mist that puts the audience in the clouds.

Falcon Rest players are the “host ghosts,” and group members are given characters of no-longer-living folks as well. They get information about their alter egos, but no lines to remember, so they’re free to ad-lib as much or as little as they like. Since the ghostly guests at the convention aren't limited to a certain time period, all kinds of hilarious historical interactions are possible. Anyone from Henry VIII to Lady Godiva to Elvis could show up for the fun.

The show ends with a special surprise twist and is followed by a “spooktacular” feast in the elegant Victorian Carriage House reception hall.

Falcon Rest's ghosts are fun, too.
All shows include a delicious three-course meal, the interactive history show, a "no-ropes or barriers" tour of Falcon Rest Mansion, and shopping in the Victorian Gift Shop. Allow about three hours for a leisurely visit.

A performance can be scheduled any time at your convenience for a group or 30 or more. (We'll "spook" at breakfast, lunch or dinner, seven days a week.) Call 931-668-4444 or e-mail for information or to make reservations.

Gems from the Gent

“Falcon Rest is known as ‘the Victorian mansion where history is fun, and our ‘spooks’ apparently share that disposition. In fact, a movie director who claimed sensitivity to the unseen told us years ago, ‘I feel a real presence here, but it is friendly, curious, and just wants to be known.’ It stands to reason that our ghostly goings-on should be fun."
