Bishop Castle

Things to do around Colorado – Bishop Castle

72 miles south of Colorado Springs, near the city of Rye, stands Bishop Castle.

Construction of the castle began in 1969, when Bishop began construction on a family cottage, which he decided to surround with rocks. Several neighbors noted that the structure looked something like a castle. Bishop took this into consideration and soon began building his castle. He had bought the land when he was fifteen for a price of $450.
