Rye, Colorado

Bishop Castle is a castle built by one man, Jim Bishop. Jim Bishop first bought this land for $450 in 1969 originally for a family cottage, but moved onto becoming a castle after he surrounded the cottage with stone which the neighbors stated that it looked like a castle.

It is free to enter, donations are accepted though. There is also a gift shop on the premises with many items to buy and help out the continuing developing of the castle. In March of 2018 there was a fire in the old giftshop which was built into the castle but since then they have a seperate building for the gift.
