My Royal Family!
I went to a real castle!!!
Howard Gould and his wife, actress Katherine Clemmons,
created the original estate on Sands Point, purchasing the land in 1900 and 1901.
Castle Gould was designed by architect Augustus N. Allen in 1902 to look like
Ireland’s Kilkenny Castle and was completed in 1904.
This impressive 100,000-square-foot limestone building
was intended to be the main residence on the estate,
but when Katherine decided that it did not suit her,
Howard proceeded to build Hempstead House.

I know I'll be going back to my home away from home very soon!
A lot of the grounds were closed off because
the hit TV show: Gotham is being filmed there!
Keep making your home into your castle,
Until u get a castle to make into your home!
