Spanning three centuries since 1887 Castle Warden was built for William Grey Warden and his family as a winter residence in tropical St. Augustine, Florida. Castle Warden now houses the famed Ripley’s Believe it or Not Museum. The 160 year-old Castle Garden Bed and Breakfast, formerly the Castle Warden Carriage House with its unusual coquina stone exterior, remains virtually untouched. With the foundation and chimney from the old blacksmith’s shop still standing, you can visualize the generations past of the mediaeval wonders of the Blacksmith’s art. The pounding of the blacksmith’s hammer resonated music throughout the garden simulating drum beats of the early tribes of Indians living beyond the walls of St. Augustine.
