Neat castle created by local rich man William Gillette. Definitely a quirky, interesting CT stop.

If you appreciate the beauty of hand placed stone work and intricate wood carving then this is a must see. Don't forget to take in each one of a kind hand carved door. There are 47 of them! Really enjoyed it and the grounds were just as nice to walk around.
