Welcome to Gillette's Castle. It was a horribly hot and humid day with no ac in the van to take comfort in after a hike. I don't know what I was thinking. Well, I guess I was thinking of our goal and all of you out there looking for us. hahaha
|Even the camera was revolting against the humidity!|
To start Gillette built a railroad track on his property complete with Grand Central Station overlooking the CT River. The kids are contemplating life, haha just kidding. I'm not sure what they were thinking but the pictures are cute.
|Orion in the entryway closet complete with stone hooks to hang coats.|
|Main staircase. It has a stone seat in the corner and a secret passageway to the living room|
so he could skip ahead of his guests and greet them as they enter the room.
|Tiffany hanging lamp at the top of the stairs.|
|Electrical panel in main staircase. The secret passage door is just to the left up a few skinny stairs.|
|Secret passage door in the living room.|
|This is the dinning room table. Gillette put metal rails on the floor under this table and his desk table|
and chair so that it wouldn't scratch the wood when it moved. Smart guy!
