This Epic New York Castle Is Hosting An Estate Sale And You’ll Want To Go
The Empire State is jam-packed with natural and man-made wonders, so many in fact that we often forget about all of the privately-owned hidden gems that are tucked away within our state. If you live in the Western New York, there’s a good chance that you’re familiar with one beautiful location that we haven’t been able to get a peek at for years. For this weekend only, the Williamsville Castle is hosting an estate sale that’s unlike anything you’ve ever experienced.
Just 20 minutes outside Buffalo, the small village of Williamsville has a hidden treasure that some may not know about.
Dating back to 1917, the man-made wonder is known as the Williamsville Castle, Oechsner Castle or Cambria Castle.
Residing on Dream Island along Ellicott Creek, the castle was originally built by a German native who longed to create a medieval castle that reminded him of his home and childhood memories.
A mason who dedicated 25 years of his life to completing this enchanting property to the best of his abilities, Ignatz Oechsner passed away in 1942 without ever having the chance to actually live in this beautiful creation.
Now it's recognized as a historic landmark, and locals have long been curious about this secluded work of art that's hidden within the woods.
This weekend only, the castle is hosting an estate sale that will take place on Friday and Saturday.
As if the setting of this sale wasn't unique enough, the items that you'll find here make the experience all the more enchanting.
Waiting for you at the castle is a wide variety of antiques and vintage gems that you won't be able to find just anywhere.
With garage sale season coming into full swing, this one-of-a-kind event is the perfect way to start off your weekend.
Open to visitors on Friday from 12PM to 5PM and Saturday from 9AM to 2PM, this is something you won't want to miss.
Those coming to the sale will park along Oakgrove Drive, where a parking attendant will be available to assist you if you need any help. After you park you'll cross the magical moat and begin shopping around this gorgeous castle. Not all parts of the property will be open to the public, but there will still be plenty for you to see.
