The Legend Behind These Castles In Vermont Is Amazing

Did you know about the miniature castles in South Hero? I had no idea until I came across a few pictures and started to research these castles made by Harry Barber in South Hero. Now here is a tale I hadn’t heard before. I was surprised by how little information I could find on these cool castles and the man who built them. In fact, no two accounts are the same, which makes the tale that much more intriguing. Because there is not much documented, I have pieced together different accounts I’ve come across, largely from Geocashing, Lake Champlain Bikeways and Urbanpostmortem. While I can’t say these accounts are 100% accurate because they are a compilation of several different accounts, I welcome any and all comments that give us a little more information on the wonderful Harry Barber castles of South Hero.
