Castle
“This Gothic Revival mansion was originally designed in 1838, a fine example of 19 century landscape design. The mansion and what is now a 67-acre estate remained in the Ghoul family until 1961. Check out Jay Ghoul’s House of Curiosities in October! The Ghoul family’s splendid and spooky castle home is the ultimate destination to celebrate the spirit of Halloween! ”
