The Hidden Castle In North Dakota That Almost No One Knows About
North Dakota isn’t exactly known as a place with many castles. In fact, other than the Enchanted Castle in Regent, North Dakota, which is technically a renovated school, there are pretty much none. But what most people don’t know is that there is a castle in North Dakota hidden out in the middle of nowhere in a field, and it was actually built to be a North Dakota castle. It’s known as the Coghlan Castle. Don’t believe us? Keep reading to learn more.
If you’d like to see the Coghlan Castle for yourself, please be aware that the castle is on private property that should be respected. There is a spot open to the public on the road where you can see the castle and read the information panel. It is off of 48th Avenue about halfway between the towns of St. John and Rolla, North Dakota.
