Castle Farms is a historic location built between 1916 and 1919. The property fell into ruin until it was purchased by our current owners in 2001. The property was then restored and renovated around the remaining stone structures, and features many ways for people of all ages and abilities to enjoy their Castle Farms visit. There are elevators to reach the King’s Great Hall, a second-story reception room. There are also handicap accessible and family restrooms at several locations throughout the property. Although some areas of the grounds with intricately designed structures do not offer an immediate lift or elevator option, the exterior driveways and walking paths are commonly available to reach different interior levels with ease. Also, on any given date, an assortment of wheel chairs and/or walkers are available on a first-come, first-serve basis. Lastly, check out these virtual tours through the Able Eyes organization to view our property prior to your arrival!
