Episode 3: Fonthill Castle

Built in the early 1990s, Fonthill was the home of Henry Chapman Mercer. This castle is a mix of Medieval, Gothic, and Byzantine architectural styles and is nestled in Doylestown, Pennsylvania.

Episode 4: Beardslee Castle

Built for Augustus Beardslee in 1860, this limestone structure resembling an Irish castle is set in the heart of the Mohawk Valley in upstate New York. Although suffering major fires, the current ownership has restored it to all its former glory.

Oheka is featured in episode 5.  The Huntington estate turned hotel was built between 1914 and 1919 by Otto Herman Kahn (the estate name is drawn from the first two letters if his names). Long Island developer Gary Melius bought it in 1984 and turned it into a luxury hotel and wedding/event space.
