Campbell/Crumm Castle

Did you know there’s actually a castle here in Wichita?! 😱 Allow us to introduce you to Campbell Castle!

Since it was actually known by several names, here’s a brief rundown: - Built from 1886-1888 by the Colonel Burton Harvey Campbell, he called it Campbell Castle - In 1960, Maye Crumm purchased the property and began to call it Crumm Castle. It also briefly housed the Belle Carter High School during this time which Crumm ran. - In 1994, Terry and Paula Lowry bought and renovated the home into a bed and breakfast, The Castle Inn Riverside. - While we were unable to find the exact information online, it appears that the bed and breakfast may now be closed.

Key Features: 🛌 16 bed 🛁 16 bath 📐11400+ sq ft 🤩 Numerous structural antiques imported from Europe by the Campbells (including the 300-year-old Grand Staircase) 🌳 2 acres of landscaped grounds 🔥 6 bedrooms have whirlpool tubs and 12 have fireplaces 🕶 Solarium 🌤 Three balconies 🔭 Open rooftop area on the sixth level of the main turret 🏘 Adjacent carriage house (almost another 4000 square feet!)
