Commissioned by hotel magnate George Boldt in 1900 as a summer retreat for his wife Louise, in 1904 construction came to a halt after her sudden death. The Castle laid in ruins for decades until the Thousand Islands Bridge Authority acquired the property in 1977. To date millions of dollars have been spent on stabilization and restoration efforts on the Castle and grounds. Boldt Castle is open to the public mid-May through mid-October.
