There are a lot of ways to tell someone how much you love them. For some, it’s a bouquet of flowers, the simplicity of those three words, or a romantic getaway at your favorite bed and breakfast. James Dooley, a Gilded Age millionaire, philanthropist, and Civil War veteran, thought a bit bigger. His gift to his wife, Sallie, was the construction of a massive and extravagant marble palace. It's called "Swannanoa", and it sits on the crest of nearby Afton Mountain.
