Myth and mystery surround the haunted castle of Dundas by the Catskills
I’ve written about the resorts, castles, and abandoned buildings in the Adirondack Mountains and Catskill Mountains several times, but this castle in Sullivan County, New York, might be the most interesting and mysterious.
Dundas Castle was built in the early 1900s. The owner died before it was completed and his wife was reportedly locked in one of the upper rooms of the castle until she was sent to a psychiatric facility. The castle was then left to their 18-year-old daughter and her fortune stolen by the castle keepers.
The castle was sold to a Masonic temple to be used as a retirement home, but that dream never came true.
There are rumors and myths that the castle is haunted by the spirit of Josephine Dundas. The most mysterious and scandalous claim is that one of the ponds around the castle turns blood red during full moons, but this has never really been documented.
The castle is private property and is protected by security cameras, so it is forbidden to visit it. The best you can do is enjoy the photos of someone else who has ventured into the long abandoned castle.
