ABOUT "Kimball Castle"
Benjamin Ames Kimball finished his castle in 1899 and died in 1919. In more recent times, the castle, now in disrepair, was put up for sale and Locke’s Hill Nature Preserve was created on the land, with hiking and skiing trails. In the 1960s and 1970s vandals stole every piece of tapestry, furniture and artwork and ripped the gates off their supports. Even the oak banisters and dragon gargoyles on the castle parapets were stolen. Now, apparitions, cold spots, lights and other phenomena are said to occur in the castle, but the castle is not open to the public and trespassers will be prosecuted. There are many working together to save the castle while others are still frightened of the paranormal activities that have occurred inside.
Suitable for all guests and families (HALLOWEEN FUN)
