About Castle Hill Tour: Behind the Scenes in the Great House

Do you love checking out basements, kitchens, and other out of the way rooms? Our behind-the-scenes tour takes you past the beautiful facade and explores how the house ran when the Cranes were in residence. You’ll learn how a plumbing magnate incorporated the latest technology of the era into his summer home, including electric wind indicators and a property-wide telephone system. You’ll also see how the Trustees have improved efficiency and brought formerly dormant technology back to life.

Accessibility: This tour utilizes several staircases and is not accessible to those with mobility issues. We’re sorry, there is no elevator. Headset amplifier available upon request.

This tour has a run time of approximately 50-60 minutes. Tickets can be purchased in advance, or first-come-first-serve on property. Grounds admission is included in the ticket price and covers a 3-hour visit.
