I live in Rochester New York. Ive been trying to locate a castle and I can't find it on your website. This castle is in Dansville New York and I wanted to know the history of it. Do you know of it?

Later, I received E-Mail that said:

Well I did find out about the castle so I'll give you the information that I found so you can investigate it and maybe add it to your list. It is called Castle On The Hill. I'm not sure if it is a castle by your standards. It is located in Dansville New York. I went on the homepage and found the history of it interesting. the web site is

I'm not sure if this is what I think of as a castle. Does anyone have a better photo of the building as it looks now?

Later, I received E-Mail that said:

I have attached a more recent picture on the Castle on the Hill in Dansville, NY, its hard to get the whole castle from our camera but its a close up and more recent.

As a child I loved going to visit family in the area so that I could get a glimpse of the castle as it is one of my favorite castles. A couple of years ago I talked my husband into going up there to look at it up close and even though it has deteriorated in time and from the help of kids has been set on fire and defaced it still was beautiful.

Great looking building, but not what I think of as a castle. I will probably remove this from the website one of these days.
