    My grandfather built the Manias Manor. I would be so interested to hear ANYTHING you know on the current status of this building.

    • Hi Tina, unfortunately I don’t know really anything else about it. I know it has been salvaged and supposedly will be torn down sometime. It’s really a shame but after seeing the interior I’m not sure how it could be saved. I bet it was a pretty swank place to stay back in the day.
