Have a nomination for a jaw-dropping listing that would make a mighty fine House of the Day? Get thee to the tipline and send us your suggestions. We'd love to see what you've got.

Location: Drumore, Pa.
Price: $3,900,000
The Skinny: The Drumore Estate, 30 acres in Southern Lancaster County with buildings dating back to the 18th century, is on the market for $3.9M. While it might not be the ideal place to actually live—"Heating Type: Contact for details" is never a good sign—it is, at the very least, a really fun place to look at photos of, and, for the right type of wealthy U.S. history buff, probably something of a dream property. The estate, formerly a grist mill (a mill that grinds grain into flour) operated by a real-life Civil War veteran, includes four buildings—a mill, a cooper shop, a residence, and a barn—all meticulously restored to their original states, but minimally updated. Except the bathrooms, which are modern, thank goodness.
