In 1969 Jim Bishop started construction on a family home. He placed rocks along the perimeter which gave it a castle-like quality, ran with the idea, and the home became Bishop Castle. This one-man project has been a work in progress for more than 40 years, and has become a destination for road-trippers. For free admission, visitors can enjoy the grounds and the castle’s unique structure, wrought iron elements, steep stone steps, and a chat with its creator, Jim Bishop.
