Kimball Castle, Gilford, New Hampshire is a derelict, medieval-style castle above Lake Winnipesaukee.
Originally built as a summer estate for a railroad magnate at the start of the 20th century, the castle was donated, in the 1960s, to a foundation for the purposes of preserving the surrounding land as a nature reserve. The property was subsequently added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1982.
Kimball Castle itself is privately owned and there are plans to save it from dereliction. An adjacent property known as Kimball Castle Innkeeper's Cottage has been completely refurbished by the same owners and is available as a vacation rental on Airbnb (link below).
