Nemacolin Castle Is Currently Closed
Castle Will Reopen In The Spring For Its Annual Historic And Ghost Tours!
Spring Is Mere Weeks Away!
Winter is on its last leg and Spring is just around the corner. You wouldn't think so based solely on the beautiful of the castle (left) taken by Hayley Wilson, Brian Brashear"s girlfriend, only last week as our most recent snow storm was withering away. They answered my call for volunteers to take pictures in the worst of conditions of the castle at its most spectacular, and boy did they come through! More to come.
The 2015 schedule of events for Nemacolin Castle will be announced soon after the board of directors holds its annual meeting for that purpose. Stay tuned.
Special arrangements for year round group tours (20+) can be made by calling tour coordinator Amanda Moser at 724-785-6882,

Do you have a special event coming up such as a wedding (check out our pictures of the Gadish wedding on castle grounds), large family gathering or other photo opportunity where the historic backdrop of Nemacolin Castle might serve to enhance the celebration? For instance, a graduation photo session on the spacious castle lawns combined with a picnic and tours of the registered landmark's interior, transforming a normally a long, grueling day into a fun filled family afternoon. Or perhaps the castle's gazebo can serve as center stage for a meeting of your public service organization. Contact Nemacolin Castle's tour coordinator at 724-785-6882 to make arrangements and discuss available dates and fees, should any apply. Permission for organized events held on castle grounds must be secured and approved by the Historical Society in advance (at least a week, two or more weeks for complicated projects, such as concerts).
