That Castle in Hillsboro is Royally Trashed, Needs Rehabbing Monarch


If you’ve ever dreamed of being the prince or princess of Jeff Co, now is your chance. That huge castle that you can see from the highway down in Hillsboro is for sale and, man, it is a charming mess. The property stretches more than 150 acres and includes two huge ponds and two 1,000-gallon propane tanks to help keep your nobile toes warm in the winter. The castle was once a nursing home, then a bed and breakfast and is now a sprawling 13-room structure that needs extensive rehabilitation. But there is lots of promise in this $534,000 property — just the tower alone contains two rooms.
