Bannerman's Castle

Bannerman's Castle

Bannerman's Castle is set on Pollepel Island just off the Eastern bank of the Hudson River. The Castle was built by Francis Bannerman VI between 1901 and 1918. The castle served as a warehouse for Bannerman's military surplus business. In 1920 just two years after Bannerman's death, 200 tons of ordinance stored on the island exploded damaging part of the structure. The castle was further decimated by fire in 1969. The fire destroyed all of the castle's non-structural walls, along with its floors and roof. In 2009 about fifty percent of the castles front and east facing walls collapsed. Today hard hat tours are offered by the Bannerman's Castle Trust for people who wish to visit the remains of the structure. New York State prohibits people from visiting the island otherwise.
