Dear visitors looking for castles in Germany…

30130.jpgMy tracking tool reveals a huge interest in USA and the UK concerning castles and chateaus in Germany, France, etc. I see clicks from California, Missouri, N.Y.: These visitore are responsible for 4 % of my traffic 😉

Thank You very much! And You’re heartly invited to post a comment!

But maybe You can do me another favour: I’m searching informations about european castles, which have been purchased by Americans, transferred to the USA and re-build there. If anyone remembers such an „imported castle“, please tell me.

I found a lot of fantasy-chateaus, build by real and wannabee-millionairs in the net – 300 „Castles of the United States“ are shown at Dupontcastle.com for example – but I’m still searching for the „real“ euro-american castle.

92638-large.jpgThere is a british film from 1935 „The Ghost goes West“, in german „Ein Gespenst geht nach Amerika“ with Robert Donat – a romantic comedy which describes such a transport of a (scottish) castle. With a ghost, of course, travelling as a blind passanger. It was a great success in Britain.

I’m sure, there is a real core in the story…

Any Ideas?

  1. Tattershall Castle in Lincolnshire was almost moved to the USA. The fireplaces were extracted and returned. The chimney pieces were on a boat. Then Lord Curzon bought it and the American deal was off: http://www.english-heritage.org.uk/caring/heritage-centenary/landmark-listings/tattershall-castle … There may have been others which were successfully moved to the USA prior to this. But Tattershall changed the law and made it impossible for it to happen again. Sorry I can’t be of more help.
