Preston Castle 2010_2

Exterior brick construction of Preston Castle, Ione, California, USA (Reposted in Color)

 

The Preston Castle, formerly known as the Preston School of Industry, opened in 1894 as a rehabilitation facility for juvenile offenders. It remained opened until 1960 when a more modern facilitiy was completed. Unoccupied, the castle faded into disrepair and decay until 2001 when the Preston Castle Foundation received a 50-year lease for the property.

 

The Preston Castle is a registered California State Historical Landmark (#867) and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places (NPS-75000422)
