Visit Hammond Castle: POLL

  • Needs a date

  • Needs a location

  • Hi folks, this is a poll to see how many people would be interested in this outing. This isn't an event listing.

    We'll organize it sometime over the summer. But at least 20 people are needed for a guided tour.

    Please RSVP yes if you'd be interested in going. Tickets will be $10 each for the tour. If enough people are interested, I shall make arrangements for the tour.

    Info about Hammond Castle:
    "ohn Hays Hammond, Jr. built his medieval-style castle between the years 1926 and 1929 to serve both as his home and as a backdrop for his collection of Roman, medieval, and Renaissance artifacts. The castle was constructed as a wedding present for his wife Irene Fenton Hammond to prove how much he cared for her. In addition, the building housed the Hammond Research Corporation, from which Dr. Hammond produced over 400 patents and the ideas for over 800 inventions. Second only to Thomas Alva Edison in number of patents, John Hammond was one of America's premier inventors. His most important work was the development of remote control via radio waves, which earned him the title, "The Father of Remote Control."

    Visitors to Hammond Castle Museum are welcome to explore the castle on a tour of many rooms (map supplied) including the great hall, indoor courtyard, Renaissance dining room, two guest bedrooms, the inventions exhibit room, the library, the War room, the kitchens, the Natalie Hays Hammond exhibit room, servants quarters, as well as several smaller rooms and passage ways including a secret passageway. We suggest that you start your tour in our AV theater where you can view a short film on the life and times of the Hammonds.

    Visitors may also enjoy the beauty of the castle grounds and a view of the Atlantic shore line while strolling through our gardens or sitting on a bench taking in that view.."

    Hi guys! Apologies for disappearing on this. So it looks like a lot of you are interested in going. So..I actually ended up going there on a whim one day so I've seen it. Its pretty cool but pretty musty. So if you're like me and have mold allergies, be warned and bring some Claritin. Since I've already been, wondering if anyone here would like to volunteer to lead this event. Would involve coordinating carpool to get there since public transportation doesn't get you there. This group is for everyone to get together and organize events so please volunteer to help :-) Thanks.
