Big thanks to Mr. Dulaney for allowing us special access to his historical home. Also thanks for the great coverage and interest by Channel 29 News and Amy Vu. A special thanks to the crew of Alpha Vision Films for joining us for the entire night of investigation. Lots of great evidence on film and audio collect. Will take sometime to go through it all. Results will be posted to our website https://twistedparanormalsociety.com/ Check in and follow our adventures!

When they are done on Afton they can work on the transients living in the three junk cars located across the street from the auto body shop at Freebridge. Look for the blue plastic tarps on the cars that are used to keep the rain out and dodge ghostbuster detectives.

People cant just leave that place alone ..........let it die in peace......Dulaney has already killed it......but i love how he always puts on a good show as tho he just 'loves it, and it takes his breath away' and if there are ghosts in there, then you better be careful cause I bet they are extremly pissed off that the sorry excuse for a care taker has let there home, the marble mansion, crumble.........!

If you want to see the dead come to life be in a government office in DC at 5pm. After 8 hours of being comatose they arise and head toward the metro.

What a bunch of hype. If Delaney was so enchanted by the structure, why and how could he let it fall down on itself? As a matter of fact, all of the properties Delany owns over here are falling to pieces: Afton hotel..the gas station. The one has a hole in the roof..and he just lets it happen. What a negligence and greed; to have something, and not take care of it. If there are any ghost there, they are probably crying their hearts out.

A special thanks to Mr. Dulaney? I'll thank him when he cleans up the eyesore that he has allowed to happen to a beautiful location. The Palace at Swannanoa was in disrepair when I got married there in 1992. It was still a beautiful setting for the wedding but it was a shame that the place was starting to fall apart. Let's not forget the junk heap at the bottom of the hill. The old hotel with broken out windows and the graffiti ridden rat trap behind the gas station. Some localities have tried to force him to clean it up and local newspapers have tried to call attention to the problem but all Dulaney could do is insult the newspapers with an elitist attitude. So Mr. Dulaney if you are following these posts which I know you are not because it is beneath you; have some vision and allow someone to invest in the mountain top and create a true gateway to the Shenandoah Valley.

Is there a way to find out what the investigators found during their time at Swananoa? I love that place, and hope it can be restored.

It always baffles me, how some small minded people take up for Delaney or come up with some excuse for him, hard times, bad health.......blah blah, he has been offered millions, and millions to sell Swannanoa and always declined, so instead of letting someone who has the means to restore this timeless wonder, he settles for what should have never been an option,but i guess he considers it as option 2, let it crumble to the ground. O and yes he is very pround of the fact that Swannanoa is a crumbled ruin, but also that it doubles as his storage facility for all the junk that came out of the crappy motel that he also lets sit there and decay at the entrance of the mountain. He is an ignorant, uneducated man.........I am forced to believe he must suffer from a mental condition.....hoarding rotten buildings, and hes not even a pleasant man to speak with!!!!!!!! I adore Swannanoa, and have studied it ever since 1997, i personally have come to know Dulaney, and have nothing good to say about him!!!!!! I have offered to do fundraisers, after fundraisers for the mansion, again declined......so my heart continues to break for Swannanoa, and if those ghosts are saying anything, they are crying, especially if its Mrs. Sallie Mae, the home she loved so dearly......is she does haunt the halls, and mind you I have roamed the halls.....and never seen or heard anything, but she must be devasted, and mourning the loss of her beloved home.

I got married there 3 years ago and he charged us $3,000 to have the wedding there. It had always been my dream to get married there but it was NOT worth $3,000. He jipped us. The place wasn't even cleaned of the trash so my wedding party was cleaning stuff up 15 minutes before the wedding
