Your father was wiped out by the crash of '29, and you would have done anything to get back to a home like this. Even marrying your second cousin.

The Mott Manor is a location in Freak Show, a large mansion estate located near, or in Jupiter, Florida and has been the residence of the Mott family.


The barred front door opens to a glamorous hallway, with a staircase leading to Dandy and Gloria's room. There is a living room, a dining room that has a door leading to a kitchen, and a playroom for Dandy, full of childish décor, toys, and even a life-size theatre stage. Outside is a large garden filled with flowers, which secretly hides the buried body of Dora Brown.


Prior to 1952, the Manor has been the permanent residence of Gloria Mott and her son Dandy. Dandy would later murder the family's servant Dora Brown, his own mother and Dora's daughter Regina Ross, becoming the heir to the family fortune. Subsequently to Dandy's death in 1953, the Manor's fate is unknown, though it was most likely abandoned given that Bette and Dot Tattler decided not to live there.

  • Mott Manor is one of several buildings with a spiral staircase playing a key role throughout the series, and all have been displayed from a birds-eye view at least once or more in their retrospective seasons. All of these staircases exist in places known for having dark and sordid histories - the Murder House, the Roanoke HouseBriarcliff Manor, and Hawthorne School - implying a possible connection to Satan.
