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.
