Windows into the past are nice, but its even better when such windows are curiosities all on their own. Walter Scott, namesake of the place, used to go around telling everyone that he built this castle with the money he made off his secret mines. Truth was, he never owned it in the first place. It belonged to a businessman (Albert Johnson) who was conned into investing Scott’s fraudulent mine, yet somehow ended up in a deep friendship with the man – enough that he built Scotty his own ranch. Albert himself only used the mansion as a winter retreat. The mansion itself is Mission Revival and Spanish Colonial Revival and provides a wonderful glimpse into the 1920’s lifestyle of the rich. Though the castle is indeed open the year round, it’s best to check the National Park Service Website before visiting.
