Come visit our Castle!

Built between 1928 and 1930, the Strong Castle was the summer home of Walter Strong and family. In the early 1960’s the family sold the property to the Presbyterian Church for use as a camp ground and retreat center. This 80 year old building is designed to represent a traditional Tudor-style manor house. It boasts 10 bedrooms, 8 bathrooms and a secret passage or two.
Our tour lasts approximately one hour and includes information about the Strong family, the process of building their castle and brief touches of depression era history. Attendees also get a glimpse into castle structure and medieval life.
