Craigdarroch Castle in Victoria BC

If you like to see old, you will like Victoria BC. So many gorgeous buildings, including the Craigdarroch Castle. Here’s the Cliffsnote’s version of the castle history.

Once upon a time there was a rich guy. He decided to build a castle.


Once upon a time there was a architect. He decided to say yes to building a castle.


The rich guy and the architect started the project.


The rich guy and the architect died.


The rich guy’s wife found a new architect.


The castle was finished.


The rich guy’s wife lived in the castle for 18 years.

The rich guy’s wife died.


The rich guy’s 10 children didn’t want the castle.


The castle became a military hospital.


The castle became a college.

The castle was restored to it’s original floor plan.


Except for the bathrooms. And the kitchen.


Tourists came from all over the world to see the castle. Even Seattle. The tourists may have danced in the castle.

The end.
