A visit to the grandest of all the Gilded Age Mansions, Boldt Castle offers a glimpse into one of the most compelling love stories in history. An eternal monument to the memory of a man’s love for his wife. In 1904 construction was well underway on the 120 room castle when tragedy struck. A telegram announcing the death of George C. Boldt’s wife arrived…three hundred artisans and craftsmen were commanded to “stop all construction.” A broken hearted Boldt never returned to the island. Today, an ongoing major restoration is underway to stabilize and restore this magnificent piece of history.
Unveil the History and Mystery of Singer Castle. The marvels of the island and castle become apparent on arrival. Originally called The Towers, it was built by self-made millionaire Fredrick Bourne, for his family, as a hunting retreat completed in 1904. The castle with granite walls and turrets, 28 rooms and an elaborate clock tower rises 5 stories above the St. Lawrence River with a labyrinth of rooms, concealed secret passageways and even a dungeon. What thrilling tales this castle could tell. After 100 years as a private residence, the current owners have opened the castle to the public.
