Atalaya Castle

I recently visited Huntington State Park in Murrell's Inlet, South Carolina, and had a wonderful time tramping through Atalaya Castle, the oceanside winter home of Archer and Anna Huntington built in the 1930's. It is now on the historic register and open to the public.

 The structure's outer walls are in a square, 200 feet on each side, with the front facing the ocean.

 Within the walled structure is a large open inner court. The living quarters consist of 30 rooms around the three sides of the perimeter.

Have you ever visited a romantic castle? This one stirred up a lot of story ideas for me. Thanks for stopping by today!
