Fairytale dreams

All photos were taken by me on two different visits to Hammond Castle, Gloucester, MA.
Taken during the King Arthur Fair (2006) escaping the rain in the Parrish Relics booth!









Gotta love those “eccentric” millionaires!

  2. What a Beautiful Post! Your photos are Wonderful!
    Don't you just Love Old Architecture! It is so amazing to visit a Building that has been Standing for 100 years or More! My Husbands Family is from England. We went to a Pub there that had been serving customers for 700 years! They must have Short back then! The Ceilings were so Low you needed to duck under in places!
    Thank You for Stopping by my Blog and Your Kind Words.

  3. Ruzu - since the castle is sort of a hodge-podge of styles, there are so many different types and shapes of window - and gorgeous stained/leaded glass!

  4. Mermaiden - which wing do you want? Can you imagine the fancy dinners one could have in the great hall?

  5. Jill - Thank you!
    You lucky woman. It is amazing to be surrounded by history as you describe in the UK. If those walls could talk, the roar would likely be deafening.
