Craigdorrough Castle, Victoria, BC

Craigdorrough Castle was built by a timber baron in the late 1800s who died shortly after it was completed.  Over the years, it was used as a convalescent hospital for soldiers wounded in WW I, a music conservatory, and college classroom.  Eventually it was bought and restored by the city of Victoria.  Most impressive!
