Heard eerie music playing inside Millennium Manor while we were there. Very cool, hidden gem.

Worth seeing. But now it seems it's only open to the public on one day during the year - Memorial Day. However, you can walk all around the property and take photographs.

Millennium Manor

My wife and I visited Millennium Manor on Sept. 25, 2004. At first it seemed we were going to have to view the house from the street, but to our surprise the owner, Dean Fontaine, showed up. He was in a hurry to take his son to Chattanooga, but told us feel free to look around the property. He filled us in on a little information on the house, and gave us a flyer describing the house's creation and history. The house was to be condemned and tore down, but Mr. Fontaine bought it, and took on the challenge of restoring it.
