Kewl,

Let's buy it and make it TIJ's headquarters. Lemme see, if we collect $12 a year from each of TIJ's subscribers we should be able to raise the downpayment in about 50 more years.

When I read Mike's reply, I pictured us showing up and heard the theme from The Beverly Hillbillies.

Might want to try the public offering like State Continuing Education, Inc.

How long for a good inspection and what will it cost?

What's the guard post thing called? Is it just part of the parapet?

And what about the structure near the pond, from which the owner can orate during keg parties?

I think parapet would apply. It's clearly a defensive wall as part of a fortification.

Rampart? Or, is the wall and tower collectively the ramparts? Specifically, ramparts would "normally" be placed on an elevation or raised earth, so it may not be correct.

The other thing looks like a mausoleum, although I know it's not.

Exactly! I grew up about 40 miles from there and I'd bet money that's where the bluegrass band sets up for the ho down.

Believe it or not, there's a castle about ten miles from my house. I'm certain the interior isn't as nice as Bill's castle, but the one near me would be much easier to defend 'cause of the height of the parapets.

Maybe Erby's been inside this guy and can tell us something about it.

First it was mostly built but never lived in. It just sat there for people to gawk at from the road for years and years!

Then it burned.

Now it's been rebuilt and functions as a bed & breakfast inn type place.

Some Construction Details

You can stay in one of the turret rooms for $5,000 a night! OR you can rent the whole place for who knows how much a night!
