I drove to see it a few days after you originally posted this, and took a few photos myself.

Madame Sherri was an eccentric character. She built her house in the woods. Of course it was not really a castle, it was a wooden house, but it had the bizarre arched stone stairway leading up to a porch on the second floor. She used to throw wild parties there, entertaining her theater friends from NYC. The house burned down a number of years ago, and all that is left now is the foundation and the staircase. Most definitely not safe to climb, I saw several voids in the stonework where key stones had fallen out.

But thanks for showing your photos, I never would have known about it if you had not posted.

Thank you! Tempting, but officially not allowed and probably a safety hazard =p

I don't know anything about this, but castle seems far fetched.
It reminds me of a bridge crossing. The arches give it that appearance. The stairs could have been the access to the bridge. The arches may have allowed water or horses to pass through.
Is there more of this ruin? Are there any drawings of the actual structure? I'm fascinated by it, particularly its age. Great composition, BTW.

Thank you Terry. Not a castle in the strictest sense, rather once part of a lavish mansion which has since burned down leaving not much more than the stone staircase. Coined as a castle to this day though with a sign from the parking lot reading Castle in pointing to the ruins from what I remember... so when in Rome I took a little artistic license in upholding the term Castle especially as it relates to stock and the potential for others to use this image in premade fantasy backgrounds.

For more information about this place, feel free to visit the following link: newengland.com/today/travel/ne…

A tear jerking story into Madame Sherri from rise to fall into dementia, maybe worthy of a mainstream movie.

Thanks for the info. I thought the staircase oddly placed close to that rock, and not internal stairs. A staircase directly to the third floor from outside; makes sense now. And, quite a story!

Now THAT'S a "stairway to nowhere" if I've EVER seen one!

BEAUTIFUL shot, though.  I love it.

Impressive castle, especially the stairs. :laughing:

But seriously now, I like your shot of the ruins inbetween all this green and brown. :)

Did you dare to get on top of them? Maybe up to heaven? =p

Thank you :) Officially it's not allowed, although I did see a lady sit up top to read a book and she said she's been doing it since she was a kid.
