Singer Castle is very nice. Used to house the family of the Singer sewing machine manufacturers, More like a family mansion than a showplace. I never knew how many models of sewing machines existed, but there is one model in each room. Less changed than Bolt that was cannibalized during war times, but resurrected in a somewhat more modern manner. Beautiful castle and history.

Was this one of the places Isaac Singer lived with his several wives and all the children? I know he had one such place in England. By the time his bigamy was known, the board of directors had ousted his control, but he still had a big share and a great fortune, which he needed with his 20 kids.

I was quite aghast at your question, as I never heard anything like that either time I toured the castle. The person who commissioned the building of the castle was Frederick Bourne who I believe was president of the Singer Sewing Machine Company in the early 1900's. Wikipedia tells the story and has a nice picture, also. Uncle Sam's Boat Tours has wonderful transportation to both Bolt and Singer castles, as well as tours of the St. Laurence Seaway. Their tales of the history of the area really make the trip special.

Yes, I think Frederick was the guy who replaced Singer as the head of the company, and was very well thought of. Singer's business practices weren't completely blameless, and the business was saved and went on to even greater heights with Bourne in charge. If I ever get that way, I will be sure to tour this, as I love and repair antique Singers.

This was my favorite castle that I have toured, as it seemed to be more of a family home. There is another castle in Connecticut that is quite nice, but I cannot remember the name. Maybe starts with w. A search will solve the mystery.

Hi retirenow14, The Connecticut castle that you are referring to, is it Gillette Castle State Park in East Haddam, CT? Built by William Gillette, stage actor, playwright, director, producer and inventor. I have visited this castle, it is quite interesting with all the carved wood and quite beautiful.

Hi CatLadyOKC...How are you doing? Have not done e-mail, just been feeling "yucky" of late. Will write to you.....Regarding castles, that was one of my loves as a teen & 20 y.o. Used to visit lots of castles. When I lived in CT, went to Gillette many times with relatives from Europe. It's not just the castle to visit, also have a beautiful park, well maintained and many paths to follow. It's right near the Connecticut River and near Goodspeed Opera House. The castle has Fabulous views of the river and the rolling hills all around. When I visited the relatives in Europe, they took me to all the local castles and some down in France, Germany & England. Hope you and family are well. Hugs all around & Special caress to the Crickett. >^-^<

Yes, Tomandray, it was Gillette Castle in Conn. Very beautiful and had some amazingly distinctive woodwork, etc. There is another castle that has not really been restored. The caretaker takes your money on the first floor and guides you through the areas open to the public. It may be in Vermont. Does anyone know where this one is?

Hi retirenow14, Well, the only castle I know of in Vermont is The Wilson Castle in Proctor; it's haunted. I have not been there since age 14...1967. We were staying nearby at friends. Their house was haunted. I slept up stairs with a family friend, we both heard the footsteps in the bedroom, we heard creaking and we heard someone moving around, but there was no one there! We threw the covers over our heads and did not move for the entire night. We never went back! :( Creepy experience. :(

I can't believe it! I got 5th place in the hexagon! That is the first time I have ever placed in any configuration.

The different texture created by having some blocks stick out from the general surface is a nice relief to walls that might otherwise seem austere. The other round tower must be hidden as the one with the red/yellow flag is octagonal.
Wishing you trips of the imagination to your castle in Spain.

I suspect those protruding blocks had a defensive purpose. Would make it harder to get over the top of the walls.

Did you think I meant the rim around the edge? You're probably right about that, but I was refereing to the turrets. I should have been more accurate.

I'd be a rook-ie when it comes to touring castles, but it would make my heart beat faster in my chess to see this one.

I'd get a check up on that, mate.

I have never seen a castle and never will. Who lives in them? Why are they clear out away from everything? Don't know why I'm asking these questions, I'll never get an an answer.

God bless everyone.

"Castles were great strongholds built to give protection from enemy armies. They were often built on hill-tops that gave a commanding view all round. From the battlements soldiers could shower the heads of their attackers with deadly weapons. Castles also served as homes for kings, princes or great lords and their families and servants. Larger castles sometimes had so many people living inside that they were like small towns."

Many castles, at least the ones that aren't in ruins, are museums, but some are private homes for people with quite a bit of money.

Many castles were originally built by land owners and nobility. The reason why many are out of the way, is that they were built for defensive reasons - to make it more difficult for a rival landowner to take over their property.

Hi Jingles. I forget where you live. There are several castles around NY. One is the Casa Loma in Toronto and it is gorgeous. Another, Bodt Caslte, is on Heart Island in the 1000 Islands St Lawrence Seaway. A third which is the least pretty but is in a gorgeous spot is in Gloucester and was built by Hammond of electric organ fame.
If you can only get to one, Bodt is the best. You have to take a ferry to an island in the river to get there.
