House & Family History
Pantglas was built for banker and M.P. David Jones for 30,000, circa 1850. The top-lit Hall was notable for its large mahogany staircase. In 1919 the House and its 9,000 acre estate was sold to become any asylum; it served this purpose until 1965 when a fire caused its closure. Today only the shell remains.
