Gillette Castle

This looks out of place in Connecticut and might seem more at home in England or Scotland.  The castle here was built by the noted playwright, director and actor, William Hooker Gillette between the years 1914 and 1919.  It was designed by Gillette himself and built from native fieldstone. This is how the castle appears from across the Connecticut River.  The castle and the surrounding estate are now a state park.
