We went to the castle on the evening before Halloween so preps were being made for a black out exploration of the house. We explored the entire property and were the only ones there. This place is definitely a sad interpretation of its former glory,...More
Constant restoration and upkeep are needed to maintain this New England treasure. As we looked around the grounds the staff was preparing for a spooktacular Halloween weekend. I shudder to think of all the scary rooms to explore in the dark.
