Summary
"Bill Freeman takes readers on a tour of every significant room in this dramatic hillside castle, including the towers, the gardens, the tunnel to the stables, the greenhouses and the garage. He also tells the fascinating and tragic story of the man who built the castle, and who ultimately lost it. Born in 1859, Henry Pellatt was an accomplished athlete as a young man who broke the world record for the mile in 1879. He was an entrepreneur who was adept in the worlds of finance and industry. He was a keen royalist and military enthusiast. Above all, Pellatt was a romantic whose interest in architecture inspired the medieval-style castle that is now a Toronto landmark. Casa Loma took three hundred workers three years to build at a cost of $43.5 million. Completed in 1914, the castle was enjoyed by the Pellatts for only ten years before bankruptcy forced the family to sell it. Today, Casa Loma is owned by the City of Toronto and managed by the Liberty Entertainment Group. It is one of the city's most popular attractions."--
