Castle Home and Garden Tours

With professional ease and enthusiasm, the Wrights will take you on a tour that gives a glimpse of Victorian culture and shares the history of their family home, the Castle.

This beautiful home, a 1898 high style Queen Anne home originally built for D. H. Van Dolah, boasts a sweeping wrap around porch, three story turret, and five Flemish stepped gables to name just a few of its fine details. Inside, you explore the home’s highlights, including a three-story free floating staircase, four original white oak fireplaces, decorative art murals, balconies and circular turret rooms.

You’ll also be able to enjoy the Castle’s many English and Victorian-themed gardens, wandering on your own, or through a guided tour.
