North of Durham, on the rolling slope of Red Mountain, exists a mysterious, otherworldly abandoned castle. Much rumor and legend has long surrounded the castle and its lack of completion. From afar, it seems that this castle is better suited for a German hillside or for Russian elite, but Castle Mont Rouge calls North Carolina home, and many have wondered for years the true story behind the castle and its creator.

It doesn’t get much more interesting than an abandoned castle perched on the rolling hills of North Carolina. For more information on the Castle, follow Abandoned Homes Of North Carolina and be sure to pick up a copy of Did You See That?
