Gimghoul (Hippol) Castle, Chapel Hill, North Carolina


Gimghoul (Hippol) Castle, Chapel Hill, North Carolina is the headquarters of the Order of Gimghoul, a college society started in 1889 by a group of students from the University of North Carolina. 

Built in the early 1900s, the castle is a privately owned property (not open to the public or for tours). Whilst no internal photographs of the castle appear to be in the public domain, the exterior of the stone property does resemble a medieval castle including features such as extensive crenellations and a circular tower with conical roof.

The castle is set in an atmospheric location, in a wooded area adjacent to the Gimghoul Neighborhood Historic District.
