This building was neat looking from the outside but boring on the inside. Bedroom after bedroom made it look like a dorm building. There were only a couple of larger rooms that were not that interesting themselves. Everything was 70's decor with not much to look at. Even if it were remodeled I don't think it would be possible to profit from tourism, and I don't think a hotel would get much attraction. I understand saving something a little older but this place has had it's day. If you want real history go several miles down 24 hwy. to Lexington and you can find it there. There is not much history online because not much has happend here.

Can confirm: it's no longer there. My family lives only a mile or two away, and we drive past all the time. Growing up, we all called it the Moonies or the Cult House, only much later did I ever hear it called the Dover Mansion. There really was no sanity in attempting to turn it into a hotel/B&B. It was so far out of the way they wouldn't have gotten enough business.
Never returned

I'm not from the area only moved here less than ten years ago I heard about the place and went by there several times always day time.. I became so interested in this place I looked the age of the new enlightenment up read all about these people and they are a cult. So one day me and a friend just wanted to see the back of the house but on our way in the caretakers was outside so we hurried up pulled around the back and took pictures real fast and left we new we shouldn't b there this was maybe 3-4 years ago anyway there are spirits in that house I have pictures to prove it. I dont know much about the spirit world if u tear down the house do they stay? Ya well after that I never went back.. But why anyone would buy a home that everyone says is haunted they must like that kind of stuff i dont know but it's not a rumor or a lie it's gods truth and I hope the new owners are living in peace....

I must say i was about 15 - 16 and went out a few different times with a group of friends. i never seen anything quite like it of course being from around these parts there isnt much lol but i remember driving out at night and sneaking up and looking in the windows. as i reached adult hood i figured the caretakers were probably just as scared of strangers coming up to there house at odd hours of the night as we were scared to go up to a strange building so we stopped going . yes we all heard the stories of cults, ghosts, all that . i never saw anything like that. I did drive out with a friend of mine one day --mid day - thinking if we just talked to the caretakers they would give us a tour. i knocked on the glass door around back and there was a lady in there on a phone so we just left. BEAUTIFUL mansion. sad to hear its gone.
