I received E-Mail that said:

I recently stopped for gas on I-85 near Blacksburg, SC, not too far south of the NC border, and looked across the way as I filled up. Lo, a castle! It was a former poker parlor, I believe, poker machines having been outlawed in SC a couple years ago and the locations closed. It was in pretty good condition, but it's probably made of cardboard. It was crenellated and everything, even had statuary. I took pictures but didn't inquire about it further. I think I'll contact or visit the gas station again and see if they have info. Maybe I'll be able to afford a castle after all!

What a great looking castle, does anyone have more information?
