‪Stollmeyers Castle – Trinidad and Tobago

1 Jul

This Scottish styled castle was built by Charles Fourier Stollmeyer in 1904. In March 1971, the Castle was opened to the Public for the first time, and it is now a main destination in any city tour of Port of Spain.

Stollmeyer’s Castle was commissioned by Charles Fourier Stollmeyer in 1902 and was completed in 1904. When construction was finished, Mrs. Stollmeyer found it too extravagant for her simple tastes and her husband gave it to
their son, Conrad, as a wedding present.

It was the wife of the younger Stollmeyer who named the structure Killarney, after the place in Ireland she had hoped to spend her honeymoon. Charles Stollmeyer never lived in the castle. During the Second World War Killarney was occupied by US Forces and it is during this period it became known as Stollmeyer’s Castle.
