William Gillette's dream home turned out to be a large fieldstone castle. The 24 room mansion,
completed in 1919, was Gillette's semi retirement home, as he continued to work well past typical
retirement age, until age 82. Located in the Seven Sisters Mountains, the castle overlooks the
Connecticut River, near the town of East Haddam.
