Castles of America?

Are you cray-cray for castles? Did you know the USA has it's fair share of castles? OK, so maybe they're not hundreds of years old. Many folks might have settled with the house designs of the times, but not the creative-types. Intrigued and beguiled by castles, they said to themselves, give me shelter and make it a castle!"
This castle is in Creswell, Oregon.



Would you want to live in a castle?

A list of castles of the USA can be found here.
