Hello, I was just trying to remember the old mansion friends took me to during my tour of duty as a marine stationed at Willow Grove N.A.S. and I found the web site. Fantastic !!!! this was the place. I remember the grand ballroom looking destroyed back in 1972 and couldn’t imagine why anyone would let it go into ruin. I actually took the tunnel walk out onto the grounds...awesome...thanks for your time and photos

I really enjoyed your photos and envy the fact even in its decline you were able to experience that house. I have been a fan of Biltmore Estate Home for years but just recently rekindled my love of Gilded Era homes reading about Lynnewood Hall. Thanks again I held my breathe through half of your photos :)

I love your pictures. Would it be possible to get a copy or jpg of the front of the mansion. Do you have any meetings or photo display events?

In 1979 I happened across this structure, pretty beat up. I was amazed by the size, some marble floor was still there! It is a shame someone could not have restored this place.

When I was a little girl I want to an art show at Stotesbury circa 1968 (8 yrs old) . I remember the building was still intact and you could go into the basement and still use the restrooms and all of the great rooms still have all of its elements When I was a teenager we moved to Cromwell Road and the Manson behind my new house seemed families but I did not know why until many years later when I found the invite to the art show in one of my mothers drawers. AhHa I said. I was here. It was a great place to spend my teens. I have been though most of the basements and all of the upper levels. What a shame they let it go to waste. Please let me know if you would like me to scan and send you more photo's of the place.

Thank you for this web site. Shortly after PennSalt abandoned the building in the mid-sixties, 2 college friends who lived in the area and I went to see it. We bribed a "guard" who was keeping watch on the place with a pint of whiskey to let us in. What an incredible building. I still remember the gold inlay in the leather tops in the library shelves, and the "gold" fixtures in the walk-in showers that had several jets coming at you from the walls at full-body height. Just tried today to see if I could "Google" the place and found your site. Thanks so much for your research and photos.

I love the website. I live in the castle house on papermill road. Unfortunatly the tower now has a sever crack an may fall down. I was wondering is there any way to start a fundraiser to help with the costs of repair? I'd really hate to see another peice of history just torn down  :(

Dear Gerry,I came across your family history while preparing a blog post about my own experience in an earthquake in Avezzano in about 1978. The post is entitled “The Ultimate Seismograph”. I would very much like to use your photo by Marco J. Spallone (attached) on the blog post on my personal website http://www.satellitespy.net, and also include the following citation: “The above photo of modern Avezzano which belongs to and is copyright Marco J. Spallone. From Gerry M. Serianni’s touching family history at http://www.serianni.com/m_family.htm”I just felt that your website added a real human touch to the 1915 tragedy. Would that be OK with you, or not, as it’s obviously a very personal matter for you.  Regards,
