It could be yeah.....oooooo

It could be a place where they experiment on aliens
It could be a place where they abduct humans and test on them
It could be a place where they are working on WMD's to blow up the world
It could be a place where they are working on chemicals to put in food to sedate the world and take it over.


It could just be a house?

Could be a project for reenactments that they are yet to announce.

Could be any number of things..... but it MUST be sinister huh?

You have a point here. It would make a perfect spot for an annual renaissance fair.

Bingo, on that one!~

Oh...your post is quite wonderful...regardless of any conspiracy connections.
It's a lovely castle. I find its existence mysterious as well.
I really feel that you should check with the University of Southern Indiana, however.
They have a HUGE medieval department and do have re-enactments every spring.

Their website is:
www.usi.edu...

There are contacts within this site!!

I have e-mailed my family members who live very near there. Included your pictures.
Will let you know if they know any more than we do. One of my uncles is a professor at a different university. He will love this research!! lol

Peace...

The fact that even the tourism information about the area asks question about who and why....presented a mystery. I thought some on here might have more insight. Feel free to not participate if it is to bothersome.


It's not bothersome.... just annoying with the over dramatic intro... "steeped in mystery"


Stone henge is steeped in mystery mate.... this was built in 2005?


My point remains.... make some calls... someone somewhere will know.
There must be a record of this building being built, getting the permission for it to be built or something along those lines.

And I'll feel free to participate in any thread i like thanks.

Do you really have to be so phffftttt about this?

The OP is only curious..not in the least suggestive.
The pics are quite lovely.
Simply a mystery (meaning unknown and nothing more) castle on a hill in the middle of nowhere Indiana.

I do not find this offensive and am a little curious about it as well.
Be nice...

Peace...

If i knew what Phffftttt was.... I'd answer.

No, there was a definite attempt to hype it up or suggest that this is some sort of mystery.

The pics are ok.... lovely doesn't spring to mind...but it's personla preference i guess.
No...a mystery is something that cannot be solved..... this can be... with a little research and a few emails or phone calls.

I didn't find it offensive either.
I'm not angry or trying to be mean...perhaps you're reading my posts the wrong way.... think of it as constructive criticism.

And i helped....my last post was a map of ley lines in/near the area?

So yeah.... good work

An apology extended to you.

Gratefully received but no need.
I wasn't offended


As i said...it's difficult to read a post correctly sometimes... or how it was intended anyway.

I'm happy to help solve the mystery, was just pointing out some things i though a little cheesy or strange about the OP.

No worries.


Peace

What is it we are supposed to remember in times like this....oh yeah....stop, drop and roll. Dang. So I AM cheesy and strange. I own it.

Seriously though....thanks for the help....keep searching.

Ley lines may have absolutely no bearing on this mystery solving....it is just a term that comes up when I've read about similar "hills" and castles in places considered older than America.

I guess you would have to see this place in person to understand why I used the first paragraph in the op I did. Have you ever been somewhere or seen something that just gave you that feeling of being totally disconnected from the environment you are supposedly in? This place gives me that feeling....not just the mystery feeling but a wow ancient thoughts went into the why of this building mystery feeling. To you it's cheesy. To me it was a choice of words to try to convey the feeling I get when I look at it. That's all.

Anyways.....does the architecture of this castle since it is no doubt a reconstruction of something....ring any bells on here?

I'll be .ing that direction again soon to visit the wolf sanctuary close by and do a little dancing with the wolves. I'll take my camera along and may do a little walking around there if I can. If all else fails....I'll see if there is anyway to get past the gates and walk up and knock on the front door. We're a neighborly lot here in Indiana....and are known for just stopping by to visit.

Peace and Cheese.

For me, constructive criticsim doesn't make statements so judging and absolute as 'definite attempt.' I seriously think the OP was not trolling, took the time to post pictures and express their experiences. I just don't understand why there is so little tolerance on ATS sometimes - what happened to if you don't like it, don't click it?

I for one am appreciative for the OP otherwise, I would not even know this place exists. It's a mystery, for now, to the OP and to me. Yum, I too love castles.

I just think as a community, we should be more supportive of other ATS members. Perhaps some don't know or aware of the resources available to them - we should guide them with positive direction - not condemnation or demeaning responses.

Here is a screen shot of the Google Earth image. It is taken in the winter so that you can see some of what looks like a terracing affect on the hill. I don't know if this is a natural erosion pattern you would see or not. It seems to have a stepped pyramid shape if you look closely. Just another oddity about this place on a hill.




Has anyone ever seen a castle like this one? Or a hill with a castle on it that this may be a re-construction of somewhere?

Thanks for all the help so far.

Peace.

Well for me....it was definitely leading.
"steeped in mystery" and similar comments.

It's all about perception i guess.

I don't believe i said the OP was trolling either?
And i did try to help in the end....i was really just trying to gauge what the point and purpose of the thread was?
Perhaps i went about it in the wrong way.

I had a decent conversation with the OP via U2U and have apologized also.

Thanks for your concern though

Perception really is so much isn't it? I even find in day to day life that most disagreements, arguments are only a matter of miscommunication or perception...on either or both persons end. Where is that confounded bridge?

back at ya blupblup!

The only annoying thing I've noticed is your annoyance. The OP was just asking a question. OP, I totally "get it". I agree, it would be interesting to know what this place is all about. I'm sure it's not what some posters would "hype" it up to be, but interesting none the less.

A couple years ago I was watching a show on Castle remakes and I believe this was on it. I dont remember the show but I believe it was on the history channel. They were showing a Castle being replicated on a smaller scale by some school and it is used for re-enactments and fairs. It looks like this place but like I said I dont remember the show.

Perhaps the hill was terraced to place the castle upon it?

I don't know, I will visit this place at some time, and it will be interesting to see if the hill was already like that.

For now, since I travel the states a lot, I am living near Cahokia, IL, where there are a lot of man made hills, so this might not be so odd.

What's the history of Native Americans in the area, as it could possibly be the reason for this man made hill?

This place is called Mount Metamora and is near the town of the same name. Metamora is a historic town with lots of gift shofts that sell "country/Amish crafts."

Mount Metamora is some Christian "retreat" no doubt built to capitalize on the tourists to Metamora, whose demographic comprises of a high percentage of Christians.

Brochure:

I've driven passed it before, as well ridden a train that comes near it, but the brochure makes me think of money grubbing religious freaks, so I never bothered to visit it.
