HOFFMAN CASTLE

I received E-Mail that said:

This castle in Tuxedo Park, NY, was built for a Mr. Hoffman. It was later owned by the Harriman family. I do not know if it is still standing. Tuxedo Park is the home of several castles, but it has been a gated enclave for the very wealthy since the 1880's, and is difficult to research.

Later, I received E-Mail that said:

The castle still exists and is still beautiful. It is difficult to find and I donít know who owns it or maintains it but it is still in existence. More info on Tuxedo Park gated community by contacting a man named John W (Jack) Hobart. I donít know if he has an e-mail address. (He owns probably the smallest house in Tuxedo Park and his wife, Carol, owns a beauty salon in town.) I used to go there as a kid and watch the deer.

Later, I received E-Mail that said:

I was visiting your site and I saw that you had a segment on the Hoffman House in Tuxedo Park, NY. It was nice to see your site has an interest in such a beautiful House. The House has been in my family for over 20 years now and it is doing well. Hopefully with a little love it will do well for generations to come.

Later, I received E-Mail that said:

There is some really wonderful architecture at Tuxedo Park, and Hoffman Castle had to be one of its highlights. As an architectual historian. I wonder who the architect was who designed Hoffman Castle ?

On 1-19-12, I received e-mail that said:

My family owned the Hoffman castle back in the 1960ís. We visited every summer and had the best times. The house was built by architects Barney and Chapman 44 west 34th st. NYC in 1902. I have a copy of the architectual rendering for the home.
