Meyers Castle is an example of Jacobethan Revival Architecture and was built between 1929 and 1931 by Joseph E. Meyer. He hired Architect Cosbey Bemard, Sr., to design for him a mansion that would copy a Scottish castle once seen by Meyer. Meyer lived in the castle until his death in 1950.
The castle is surrounded by two huge banquet canopies where wedding receptions and private events are hosted. Meyer's Castle also hosts an Argentine steakhouse restaurant called Rodizio's. The food is magnificent and I would highly recommend it. The surrounding acres include a swan pond, a magnificent garden with a pond and waterfall, and beautiful trees. The castle also has peacocks and emus that fascinate the eyes of everyone.
