Is the Shaker mansion real?

The Shaker mansion is situated in Martin County, North Carolina, near 900 Sappony Road. While Roanoke, North Carolina is a genuine place, the ancient farmhouse is not. In early August 2016, TMZ announced that the mansion was surreptitiously erected in a California forest just for the program. It is now on display in the E! reality television series, "I Want My Money Back."

In addition to being one of the most expensive episodes of MTV's reality TV series, "MTV Cribs," the episode received critical acclaim. Rolling Stone called it "the best house party ever filmed for television" and cited it as one of the best episodes of the show. The Huffington Post wrote, "There are certainly worse ways to spend an afternoon than visiting with some of the world's most beautiful homes, but somehow seeing the Shaker Mansion through the eyes of Jason Schwartzman makes it even better."

Schwartzman visited the mansion with his daughter, who is a fan of the show. They were given a tour by one of the few remaining owners of the property, who also appears on the episode. She told them about how she and her husband built the house over several years, beginning in 2002. It took them seven years to complete it and they sold it a year later for $1 million.

The family business is building custom homes, so they used their own money to build this beauty.

Who owns Meeker Mansion?

The Historical Society of Ezra Meeker Meeker finished the beautiful residence in 1890 to satisfy his wife. Tacoma architects Ferrell and Darmer designed the home. The Ezra Meeker Historical Society, a private, non-profit company with 300 members, owns and operates the Meeker Mansion.

Meeker was one of the first settlers in Pierce County and made his money in the timber industry. He returned to Tacoma from California when he found gold in South Puget Sound. Meeker built this mansion for his bride after they married in 1854. She died in 1891 at age 36. Today, the Meeker Mansion is one of only three remaining Victorian houses in Tacoma. It's open for tours on Thursday afternoons from 12:00 pm to 4:00 pm. The last tour ended approximately 20 minutes before this article was published.

Tickets are $10 for adults, $5 for children under 12. Tickets go on sale one month in advance at the historical society website, www.meekermansion.org. Group sales can be arranged by calling 253-335-9333.

Is Shookum Hills a real place?

You might not be shocked to learn that Shookum Hills does not exist in the actual world and is not based on a genuine location. However, the film was shot in genuine sites in Kentucky, including Mount Vernon and Louisville.

It first came onto the scene in 1995 when its main character, Sho'nuff, a Jamaican gangster, made his appearance in New York City. The movie was so popular that it spawned several sequels, including Shookum' Express and Shookum' Holiday.

Of all the films in the Shookum series, this is probably the one that is most famous outside of Jamaica. Shookum Hill's story is told through various scenes involving characters from different gangs who all have something to do with shoemaking. Through these scenes we learn about conflicts between the different gangs, as well as how they became involved in violence in the first place. This movie is very popular in Jamaica and has been regarded as improving the quality of film making in Jamaica.

Shookum Hill has been praised for its positive message about avoiding violence. Although the movie is set in Jamaica, many people claim that it can be applied to any country or society where there is violence among people who have nothing to do with each other.

Why is Meeker Mansion famous?

Early American pioneer Ezra Meeker and his wife, Eliza, lived at the Meeker Mansion, a majestic Italianate house. The Meekers had reared their children in a one-room log cabin, but Eliza eventually requested that the house be erected. She said it would make her feel more secure when her husband was away from home trading with Indians.

The mansion was built by hired workers under the supervision of an architect. It is estimated to have cost $40,000 to build, not including the land which sold for $10,000. When construction was finished, the Meekers' daughter married a man who had inherited $100,000 from his father. They used part of the money to purchase a neighboring farm and gave the rest to charitable causes. Today, visitors can experience life as the Meeker family might have known it during their visit to the mansion.

Admission is free, but donations are welcome. There are no phones or cameras allowed inside the mansion.

Meeker Mansion is open daily from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., except for Thanksgiving and Christmas. Closed holidays include Labor Day, Memorial Day, Fourth of July, and New Year's Day.

To reach Meeker Mansion, take Interstate 90 east toward Buffalo for about 40 miles. Exit on Route 89 north toward Olean.
