Historic Cambell Castle Wichita Ks
Here is a shot of the Historic Cambell Castle





Taken this morning around 8:45 am. Strong eastern light.....

A little history behind the Castle:

The 28 room Campbell Castle is located in Wichita Kansas. It was built by Colonel Burton Harvey Campbell between 1886 and 1888. The Campbells owned the castle untill 1910, when Walter Morris purchased it. In 1960 it was purchased by Maye Crumm who began calling it Crumm Castle, and for a while, it housed the Belle Carter High School which was operated by Crumm. In 1994 the castle was purchased by Terry and Paula Lowry for $300,000. To date, over two million dollars has been spent renovating the Castle and today it is a bed & breakfast known as The Castle Inn Riverside.

That is an amazing place, but you'd have to cook an awful lot of breakfasts to recoup $2m dollars.

Any chance of shooting the interior? I'd love to see the fireplaces that are attached to those monstrous chimneys.
