Searles Castle

I used to have a nice view of Searles Castle from my spot on Cobbett’s Pond, but not anymore, with the exception of wintertime. The trees have grown up and totally obscure the view of the castle beside one small central tower. This is a Eastern Illustrating photograph near the time of the castle’s construction by Edward Searles. Indian Rock Road, bounded by stone walls, can be seen just behind the shed and piles of wood.  I wonder when the wooden observation tower disappeared?
