Gillette Castle State Park

Welcome

Gillette Castle State Park

East Haddam

Interior View of Gillette Castle

 

It looks like a medieval fortress, but a step inside the stone castle reveals the built-in couches, table trackway, and woodcarvings that all point to the creative genius that was William Gillette.

 

Please excuse our appearance as a major wall renovation on the north side of Gillette Castle is underway during the fall and winter 2019-2020.

This property was acquired and/or developed with the assistance of the Land and Water Conservation Fund
