Boldt Castle on Heart Island

castles 1

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.
