The Man, The Myth, The Legend...



William Gillette was a man of fame but also of impressive lineage. The castle on the banks of the Connecticut stands as a testament to the man who brought to life a character who was bigger than life itself.

Within the castle is a museum that preserves the history of William Gillette as he progressed through his life as a senator's son and into the great Sherlock Holmes on the world stage.
