William Hooker Gillette was a noted actor around the turn of the last century, famous for his portrayals of Sherlock Holmes. He built a 24 room mansion in the form of a castle on 184 acres at a promontory high above the Connecticut River in East Haddam. Today it is a state park.
Wow, quite a place!
Unique architecture, a tribute to the stone worker's art.
That looks quite unique indeed.
It looks like a stage-set, very appropriate for an actor, though it wouldn't need Sherlock Holmes to know it wasn't a real castle.
Wow so mysterious castle. I love it. Fabulous place. ❤❤❤
