    Surprisingly, there is a castle on the Hudson River in the state of New York. Many train commuters pass right by Bannerman’s Castle. Although the castle is seen from the window of a modern train, it is over a century old. Francis Bannerman VI purchased an island on the Hudson River in 1900. On it, he built a castle designed to look like a Scottish castle. Bannerman used the finished structure as a warehouse in which to store historic military items. He and his family lived in a separate smaller castle-themed home on the island. After Francis Bannerman VI died in 1918, the family kept the castle for decades and visited it regularly. In 1967, the island and the buildings on it were sold to the state of New York. In 1969, the castle was damaged by a fire. However, its outer walls remained standing, and the castle became an official tourist attraction. Since 1993, the castle has been run by a trust fund. The head of the trust fund, Neil Caplan, is diligently seeking grants and donations to preserve what is left of the castle. Every year, more of the castle crumbles to the ground. Because of pieces falling off the castle, tourists must wear hardhats and cannot get too close. Caplan hopes that the money will appear before it’s too late to save Bannerman’s Castle. Tourists may want to make the trip to see the castle sooner rather than later
