Usen Castle, Massachusetts

 

Usen Castle, Massachusetts is a halls of residence at the private Brandeis University in Waltham, MA.

The iconic building was modelled on a medieval style castle. 

Built in 1928 the castle was used from the 1950s as accommodation for students and was listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

As confirmed by this document from the Brandeis University website, the building was deemed unsafe in its current state by the city of Waltham and subsequently plans were approved and implemented for the partial demolition of the castle with the two main towers remaining in situ.
