A Glass Castle, Boswell, British Columbia, Canada


'The Glass House' is a glass, castle-style creation in Boswell, British Columbia, Canada. 

Set on the edge of Kootenay Lake, there are stunning views to be enjoyed from the gardens here but tourists flock to this location for the unique house created in the 1950s by David H. Brown.

Seeking a use for the empty bottles of embalming fluid from the funeral business in which he worked, David set about building a glass and concrete castellated property.  In the process he used over half a million discarded embalming fluid bottles to build a magical, cloverleaf-shaped creation set in glorious grounds.

Tours of the estate are available seven days a week, May to October. A gift shop is also located on property.
