A passion since young childhood, Collen Moore created this castle over the course of many years, and filled its rooms with detailed miniatures, from chess sets to vaulted ceilings. Measuring 9’ x 9’ x 14’, the size of each room can be best revealed in the accompanying illustration of herself seated in front of the ‘great hall’. Upon completion it was valued at a half a million dollars, and was exhibited widely with the admission price being donated “for the relief of crippled children everywhere.”
