Skip the White House, We Have Real Castles in DC - Check Us Out!

By
Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Capital Properties DC AB15253

Of course we have the White House and all the embassies but Cinderella doesn't live in those places.  In DC, we actually have a few castles to go along with the home of the President and all those ambassadors.  You won't find Queen Elizabeth living in any of these castles, but it is fun to imagine what life would be like if you lived in a castle in Washington! 

1.  The Gibbons Hall Castle at Catholic University

2. Rossdhu Gate

3. Blue Castle

6. Smithsonian Castle

Good morning Lise. I really enjoyed this and would never have known. The White House has never been a castle for me but generally the peoples house until recently.

Hi Lise,
I had no idea DC has ANY castles, let alone so many.  Thanks for the castle tour.

I'm bookmarking this one.  My niece is coming for a visit this summer and I always get stumped as to what to do with her.  Thanks for sharing this.

Hi Lise

This was such a fun post. I'm not sure which is my favorite. Despite living in the area for several years, and visiting a bunch of times, I can't say I have visited or even seen any of these, other than the Smithsonian!

Fascinating post! I didn't know about more than half of these structures. They are all beautiful buildings from an architectural standpoint. Thank you for sharing the significance of these historic buildings.
