After checking out some of the springs and having a nice lunch, we went to the Miramount Castle Museum.
Father Jean Baptiste Francolon built Miramont Castle in 1895. The house is "an eclectic estate that blends a variety of architectural styles from Byzantine to Tudor. Construction was completed in 1896. The castle is an architectural example of the Victorian Era. In 1976 Miramont Castle was added to the National Register of Historic Places due to its significant historic heritage and architectural variety.
Popular folklore has it that the castle is haunted with various apparitions and unexplained phenomenon as reported by visitors and staff.
