Fodor's Expert Review Preston Castle

Jackson Historic District/Site

History buffs and ghost hunters regularly make the trip to this fantastically creepy, 156-room, Romanesque Revival structure erected in 1894 to house troubled youth. Having fallen into disrepair, the building is slowly undergoing a full restoration. On tours, which take place on many Saturdays between April and August, you'll hear all sorts of spine-tingling tales.
