FrightMare Manor Haunted Attraction The Manor has been completely redesigned and updated for 2013. Spanning 2 floors, this attraction is set in the original plantation house of American Serial Killer Jeremiah Lexer and his family. Many of the artifacts and items seen within the Manor are original. The burnt out fireplaces, playful writings on the wall from his grandchildren, and even ax-blade marked walls, remain as they were left in 1902. You will descend the very staircase Lexer walked up before committing suicide after his final rampage of murders. This is not a fake Haunted Attraction. You are stepping back in time and seeing inside the home and mind of one of America’s earliest known serial killers – Be mindful of your surroundings and don’t let go of your friends because NO ONE can hear you scream once inside Frightmare Manor - True Terror Exists Here.

Frightmare Chaos – this enormous barn-structure is a labyrinth of fear, torture, desperation and slaughter, and drenched in innocent blood. Lexer was obsessed with blood, as was described within his writings, going as far as to ensure every wall within this structure be a contrasting white. As stated in the Lexer Manifesto, “White captures the blood distinctly and will remember each unique splatter”. Screaming bodies were dragged into these walls 111 years ago with no one ever emerging alive. Lexer’s torturous tactics and experiments transformed his victims into savage, flesh-eating humans where only the luckiest would die quickly.


This intimidating structure was finished in August of 2013 to the exact specifications of the original Lexer blueprints found within the Manor by Sheriff Hays on July 5th, 1902. The evil, master plan of Jeremiah Lexer is now available for viewing within the Hamblen County Archives. Prepare yourself as the mangled, tortured spirits of the countless Lexer victims return for vengeance on anyone within these blood-stained walls. “They will beg for death” – Frightmare Chaos.

Frightmare Necropolis casts you deep into the dark shadows of the once-forgotten, abandoned Lexer body farm. This thick-brushed, wooded area at the back of the plantation wreaks of decomposed flesh and marks where the majority of Lexer’s 31 dismembered victims were unearthed in July of 1902. Records show Lexer hacked his victims into dozens of pieces to prevent identification ; he then spread the remains throughout this “valley of death”. Remnants of bodies and proof of small structures continue to be uncovered despite over 100 years of neglect and decomposition. Jeremiah Lexer was a serial killer of deadly disguise, an agent of true terror, an extractor of fear.

Legend says that Necropolis holds all the fears of his victim’s final hours and continues to capture and exploit the fears of even those who enter today. The original cabin, where skins of animals and humans alike were hung by Lexer, still stands today and guards the entrance of Necropolis. With excavation continuing, new areas of Necropolis have now been opened to the public for Fall 2013. No amount of nervous laughter can help you. You are walking amongst death at every turn. If you’re not screaming, you’re already dead – Frightmare Necropolis.
