Swannanoa Palace was built in 1912 by a farmer named James Dooley, who modeled his home after the Medici family’s palace in Rome. The Palace sits high atop the Blue Ridge Mountains at Afton. Small group tours of the palace may be arranged and on selected weekends the palace is open for tours to the public.
