“beautiful with a great history”
Review of Gimghoul Castle

Gimghoul Castle
Ranked #19 of 49 things to do in Chapel Hill
Attraction details
Reviewed 8 September 2014

The Order of Gimghoul ( a secret society founded by students of the University of North Carolina) was founded in 1889 and after 1920 they started using the castle as their headquarters. It's not open to the public (and no trespassing signs are posted all over the place) but it is on a public road so you can drive to the end and park to look at the castle (the road turns into a dirt road). Be sure to read the history of duels over women and ghosts before you go to see it. There appears to be a walking trail in back of the castle that may be part of the Battle Park trail system but I don't know for sure.
