Gilette's Castle

We traveled to East Haddam, CT to visit the home of  Sherlock Holmes actor and director, William Gilette. I've visited the castle a few times before and knew that Jon would love it. He did and now would like to take a castle tour of Ireland, naturally.

William Gilette was an eccentric man and filled his home with lots of beautiful carvings, glass, and tricks for his guests.
