The Hidden Castle In Texas That Almost No One Knows About
When you think of castles, Texas is probably one of the last places that comes to mind. Here in the Lone Star State, however, we have an abundance of grandiose, palace-like buildings that are simply astounding. There’s one hidden castle in particular that almost nobody in the state knows anything about — Smythwick Castle & Lodge in Marble Falls.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
The castle is located at 12615 E Fm 1431, Marble Falls, TX 78654. Have you ever been to Smythwick Castle? What about any of these other castles in Texas?
