"The Ruins Of Bannerman's Island"

Did you know, there are the ruins of a castle sitting empty upon Pollepel Island (on the Hudson River) -- only 50 miles north of New York City? At first glance, you might think the abandoned and decaying remnants are located in Europe... or somewhere in Ireland; the architecture is very unique. But no... it's definitely on American soil.

It's called Bannerman's Castle, and while it looks like the ruins of a castle, it's actually an old abandoned military surplus warehouse, built in the early 1900's by wealthy Scottish immigrant, Francis Bannerman VI. Here are some photos of old Bannerman's Castle, as well as the history surrounding it's abandonment. It's a fascinating story, and one most American's probably know nothing about. Take a peek... and enjoy!
