Definitely worth visiting if you're interested in local history. It's not a replica of what the castle used to look like. They had an exhibit on firefighters, for example. Nice staff and cool artifacts.

Good choice for a rainy day. Large house with four levels, period furnishings, art exhibit and fire fighter display. There was a gift shop on the top level and gardens outside.

This place is amazing and the lady at the front desk was so very helpful and knowledgeable. Wish we could have tried out the tea room but need a reservation for that. Will definitely check that out next time.

We researched castles in Colorado. This one seemed the most child friendly and not too out of the way. We went there not really knowing what to expect. Their website is expansive but you don't get a full jist of just how big it is...More
