  • Castle Craig sits high on a rocky cliff, in a park off of Main Street, in Meriden, Ct. It is more of an observation tower rather than a residential castle. on a clear day you can see New Haven and the Long Island Sound about 25 miles away. The castle was dedicated October 29th, 1900 and was given to the people of Meriden by Walter Hubbard. The round observation tower was built of trap rock and is 32 feet in height and about 18 feet in diameter. An interior stairway is used to get up to the observation area on top. This observation area is 1007 feet above sea level and provides a spectacular view of the greater Meridan area. Castle Craig is part of the 1800 acre Hubbard Park which is named after Walter Hubbard. There are hiking trails to the tower as well as a road which is open from April to October from 10:00 am till 5:00 pm. It's the tallest land mass so close to a body of water (Long Island Sound) from Maine to Florida.

  • Yaddo. Yaddo castle was built in 1893 by New York City financier and philanthropist, Spencer Trask and his wife, Kate (Katrina) Trask. William Halsey Wood was the architect. The castle is an imposing building with many turrets and spires and a tower room. In 1900, The Corporation of Yaddo was formed and endowed to administer a working community of artists in perpetuity, a plan to be put into effect following the Trasks' deaths. Spencer Trask died in 1909 and his wife in 1922 and at that time,a young woman named Elizabeth Ames became Executive Director. In 1926 she welcomed the first group of creative workers. Since then, Yaddo's mission to provide artists uninterrupted time to work, good working conditions, and a supportive community, has remained central to its operation. The Estate is usually closed to the public (excepting the Gardens) to insure privacy for the guest artists

  • Beeston's the nearest, although there are tons in Wales, which is just down the road (relatively speaking). The medieval ruins of Beeston Castle stand on a rocky summit 500ft above the Cheshire plain, and from them you can look across to the Pennines in the east and to the Welsh mountains in the west. The castle was built by Ranulf, the sixth Earl of Chester, from 1225 onwards and contains one of the deepest castle wells in the country. The castle was seized by King Henry III in 1237 and he, and later his son, King Edward I, used it as a base for their campaigns against the Welsh. The castle was finally destroyed at the end of the Civil War.
