CASA LOMA - THE HOUSE ON A HILL (PART 2)

This luxurious resident was built by Sir Henry Mill Pellat but then the castle was abandoned due to economic depression after World War l. It is now a museum but one good thing about this place, visitors are allowed to roam around almost every nook and corner. We went up the attic to see the view from the tower. We went through some sort of a secret tunnel which took us to the other part of the house which was across the road. It reminded me of the mystery novels written by Enid Blyton that I grew up with.

there's a cannon in the bedroom

The person building this castle must be filthy rich. If you have a lot of money, lots and lots of it, will you do the same thing? As for me, why not?
