When William Gillette died in 1937, his will insisted that the medieval castle he'd built not fall to "some blithering saphead who has no conception of where he is or with what surrounded." Though the castle was closed for four years from 1998 to 2002 due to its state of disrepair, visitors today can be grateful for the State of Connecticut's investment of time and money in restoring and preserving this unique landmark. William Gillette would be pleased.
