If you ever get a chance to visit the Bishop Castle down by Rye, Colorado, do so. It's worth the trip!
Bishop never did get a permit to build his castle. I remember about 30 years ago, Custer County tried to get him to tear it down. He ignored them and kept building.what the?.......... I'd love to present this to my towns planning committee. It took them over two years to ok a McDonalds.
