Looking like it dropped straight from the shores of Germany's Rhine River, Boldt Castle is a magnificent six-story island castle in the heart of the Thousand Islands area. In 1900, a millionaire by the name of George C. Boldt went to work building a castle with over 120 rooms for his wife, Louise. Yet the fantasy castle was not to be. When Louise died shortly after the work commenced, George lost all interest in the castle and it was abandoned.
Seventy years later, the Thousand Islands Bridge Authority acquired the property and restored and improved the structure. The first level of the castle is now a museum, filled with exhibits dedicated to the lives of George and Louise Boldt and the development of the Thousand Island region.
