Castle Gwynn, Arrington, Tennessee

 

Castle Gwynn, Tennessee is a partially complete, fairytale castle with two towers in Arrington, Tennessee – conceived and built by photographer Mike Freeman (see below for a great aerial image of the castle).  

Reputedly taking its architectural inspiration from the very picturesque Castell Coch in Wales, Gwynn Castle now plays host to the popular Tennessee Renaissance Festival – during which time, visitors can also have tours of the castle.

 

From the Castle Gwynn website:

 

“The vision began in 1970 as high school architecture student Mike Freeman drafted his dream home a “Castle”. His dream, hard work, and sacrifices have led Mike and his wife Jackie on a long journey. The Freeman's share their home with the public weekends in May and Memorial Day as a bonus attraction included in admission to the Tennessee Renaissance Festival”.
