Madame Sherri's Castle

You are here Home  > Historical Buildings >  Madame Sherri's Castle

Famous for its arched stone staircase in the middle of the forest, Madame Sherri’s castle is also legendary for its rumors of ghosts. Madame Antoinette Sherri was a costume designer who planned to build a castle here in the late 1920s, but she ran out of funds and the castle was left abandoned. Still remaining are the staircase, foundation, some columns and a fireplace. Some say Madame Sherri’s apparition has been seen on the staircase, called the “stairway to heaven” by some. In addition, some witnesses have described the sounds of laughter and music.

  1. The oddest thing I’ve ever seen here was a group of amateur filmmakers using the place as a location for a medieval movie.

    I can remember when the central chimney was still standing, but it’s since been toppled by kids trying to out-stupid one another.
