In 1900 the wealthy hotel proprietor George Boldt set out to build the ultimate display of love. A massive rhineland inspired castle for his beloved wife Louise. Today Boldt Castle has become one of, if not the most iconic landmarks in the 1000 Islands Region. With a tragic history only rivaled by the Castle’s immense size and grandeur.

Back of plate reads: “Boldt Castle on Heart Island. A truly romantic legend. George Boldt of Waldorf Historia fame in New York began work in 1900 on a truly monumental token of love and admiration to his wife Louise. After purchasing the Island, he had it dynamited into its heart-shape. Granite was quarried in from Oak Island 10 miles from the site. This million dollar plus estate includes… 11 castle buildings, a large boathouse for a fleet of steamships and tall stepped mast yachts. A total 120 rooms ; not including Wellesley Island that hosts 1500 acres farmland, polo fields, 6 villas and a 50 room cottage. Two years into his dream Louise passed away leaving him heartbroken and unable to finish what stands today as the number one tourist attraction of the 1000 Islands.”
