Geocache Description:

Photobucket

Millennium Manor was built to survive Armageddon and a thousand years beyond. If any structure can endure that fate, then certainly it is this one. Millennium Manor was built using Roman architecture which can still be seen standing in structures after more than 2,000 years.

Millennium Manor was built from 1938 to 1946 by William Andrew Nicholson and his wife Fair. Nicholson had moved from Pickens Co. Ga., where he was a mason and carpenter. In 1937 he got a job at the nearby Alcoa Aluminum Plant. A year later he started construction of the santuary that would protect him and his family from Armageddon and a thousand years beyond to await the Second Coming of Christ.

Several years after the passing of William and Fair Nicholson, the property was purchased by it present owner and occupant Mr. Dean Fontaine (pictured above). Mr. Fontaine has spent the last 15 years in the process of restoring this unusual building to it's former grandeur. For more information on the history of Millennium Manor click click here.

This is a daytime only geocache. Please be respectful of the property, as Mr. Fontaine has given permission for this geocache to be placed at this location.
