Stollmeyer’s Castle, originally Killarney, was built from 1902 to 1904 by Charles Fourier Stollmeyer in a Scottish Baronial style and said particularly to be modeled on a wing of Queen Victoria’s residence at Balmoral. The castle was sold to the government in 1979 to be converted to a Protocol House.

 

The Magnificent Seven are a row of grand old houses on the western edge of Queen’s Park Savannah built in 1904, except for Hayes Court built in 1910. Each plantation owner intended his residence to be more impressive than any of his neighbors’. Restoration status varies. Several are owned by the government.
