Craigdarroch Castle, British Columbia

I saw this "castle" on a TV program and had to look it up. I love old Victorian homes.

And today.

Taken from the Wiki entry:
Craigdarroch Castle in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada is an historic, Victorian-era mansion. It was constructed in the 1890s as a family residence for the wife of wealthy coal baron Robert Dunsmuir. The four-story home is known for it's stained-glass and intricate woodwork. The Castle is currently owned by the Craigdarroch Castle Historical Museum Society and is open to the public.
