Although not as numerous or grand as their European counterparts, a surprisingly large number of castles were built in New Jersey a century or more ago. The slide program includes well-known castles such as Lambert and Kipís castles (photo) as well as lesser known ones throughout the state. Many of them still exist, some have been disguised over the years, and others have vanished.
