Texas Bucket List – N: Newman’s Castle ~ Blogging Through the Alphabet


Y’all! I found the website for Newman’s Castle a few months ago when I was looking for a day trip for our family. It looks incredibly fun and interesting. We haven’t gone yet but I am still hoping to!

Newman’s Castle is a custom build, medieval castle in central Texas. Truly! This castle has a moat, a working drawbridge, turrets, a central keep, and a surrounding wall for “safety”. It is open for tours but reservations are required. It is a privately owned castle.

Mr. Newman built the castle. He became interested in doing so after visiting Europe in his 20s. He also has a successful bakery.

A visit to the Bellville area for a tour of the castle and lunch at the bakery is definitely on my day trip list of “want to do soon!”

At Home.

    A castle! I looked at the link — looks like a fantastic place to visit (and maybe see a dragon or two…dragons love bakeries!).

      I know! I never dreamed I would have a full-fledged castle come up on a search. Very neat! I don’t know much about dragons but I like bakeries, too!
