Dupont Castle is one of my favorite sites. It is is run by Jim Dupont who is building his own castle in West Virginia, USA. He occasionally post pictures of his castle. Also he has many links to castles here in the United States. Some of them have pictures and emails from the owners giving details of the castles histories. Unfortunately, Jim is no longer updating his website of castles in the USA. There are still many good links for you to check out.
