Preston Castle ~ Ione ~ July 16, 2011

Had a great time on another Order of the Zombie adventure with Wednesday, Wirehed and Karen. We started at the Preston School of Industry, also known as the Preston Castle. They offer tours every first and third Saturday, starting approximately every 20 minutes from  10am – 1pm. The building was even more impressive than I expected. Built from 1890-1894, this Romanesque style building was larger and more ominous than it appeared in the photos I saw online.

Our tour lasted a little over an hour. We really enjoyed the narrative, the architecture and the sheer creepiness of being in a building that had been abandoned for over 40 years, the decor frozen in time.

Wednesday took these photos:
