About Warner Castle

Horatio Gates Warner designed his home, Warner Castle, built in 1854, to resemble the ancestral castle of the Clan Douglas which captivated his fancy during a visit to Scotland. A self-guided tour (available at Warner Castle) shares the history and architecture of this American Castle and its beautiful interior.

Stroll the grounds and discover the Sunken Garden designed by famous landscape architect, Alling S. DeForest.

The Sunken Garden may be rented from the Monroe County Parks Department for wedding photos. Wedding ceremonies are not allowed in the Sunken Garden, but are allowed in other areas of Highland Park. Visit the Visit the Parks Department’s web site and click on the link for the Online Wedding Reservation Application (this allows you to make reservations for photographs in the Sunken Garden).
