Nestled less than one mile from Interstate 55 and historic Route 66 in Lexington, is Castle Gardens, a truly unique estate. Castle Gardens features the nationally recognized David Hyatt Van Dolah house, a MTC 36-passenger train, and a locally restored Allan Herschell 36-horse carousel.
With professional ease and enthusiasm, the Wrights will take you on a tour that gives a glimpse of Victorian culture and shares the history of their family home, the Castle.
This beautiful home, a 1898 high style Queen Anne home originally built for D. H. Van Dolah, boasts a sweeping wrap around porch, three story turret, and six Flemish stepped gables to name just a few of its fine details. Inside, you explore the home’s highlights, including a three-story free floating staircase, four original white oak fireplaces, decorative art murals, balconies and circular turret rooms.
You will also be able to enjoy the Castle’s many formal gardens, wandering on your own, or through a guided tour.
Tour tickets only $25 each.
