I think these are great! Being in Minnesota I see lots of homes here for a million dollars. None compare to owning a mansion, for the same price! Living in one would be like a fairy tale come true.

These castles are apparently all for sale. That is why they were highlighted. There are, indeed, some impressive castle-type (or actual ) edifices in the Midwest. One is the beautirul Joslyn Castle in Omaha. There are probably a host of castles or their equivalent scattered about the country; one 20-slide presentation can't possibly serve them all.

Wonder what the maintenance on a place like that is?  There's a stone church of similar design in a neighboring town and they had to refurbish it a few years back....it was a major project...luckily they had a wealthy member who made it possible. There was a crew of men and equipment for most of the year working on it. And that was just the outside!

Where are the walls and moat? Check out the Castle on Versailles Rd in Lexington, Ky. It was built as a personal home, now a bed and breakfast.

I am a Baroness but we too get hit with economy issues. We live in a modest home. Titles dont mean anything to anyone anymore.

Do a  search for Stone gate manor in East Rochester Ohio. They have a website somewhere.  I do a tour here every year.

There is a beautiful castle being built outside of Houston, TX called Newman's Castle in Belville, TX.  Medievel look with white stone and wood, Mr. Newman is building it himself down to the smallest details!  I believe he is opening it as a B&B in about 6 months.  I can't wait!

I wonder why the Midwest seems to always gets left out of everything.  Some of these homes that were shown weren't even real castles, especially the one in New Mexico.  National Geographic Channel did a series of shows years ago and Wisconsin, along with other Midwest states was left out.  Now in this story about castles in America is being ignored again.  I know of a castle right in Illinois that I actually stayed at.  I don't remember it's exact location, but it was North central Illinois.  It was brought over here from Europe and completely rebuilt exactly as it was there, complete with hidden rooms and passage ways.  It and the grounds were eventually given over to a retreat.  One passageway and a family chapel was just recently discovered, before a group I was with stayed there a number of years ago, before I heard of the internet of that it even existed.  The group that owned it knew that were other passageways too, but they just weren't even able to find them yet at that time.

All this mention of dungeons, and I didn't see a single one. Did I miss something?

"Room for lots of autos"? It looks like there's room for only 3, unless you use hydraulic lifts and stack 6.
