When prominent New York City hotelier George Boldt demonstrated his love for his wife, Louise, by building a magnificent chateau in the beautiful Thousand Islands, no expense was too great and no idea too grand. But when Louise died suddenly, George immediately brought construction to a halt. Broken-hearted, he never set foot on the island again, and the lonely castle was abandoned to time and the elements for over 70 years.
In Boldt Castle: The Story of an Unfinished Dream, Anthony Mollica Jr. shares the fascinating details behind the crumbling castle that captured his imagination as a child, and describes the ambitious restoration project that has brought new life to the Boldts' island estate. George Fischer's stunning photographs capture the magnificence of Boldt Castle today, an enduring symbol of devotion that attracts thousands of visitors each year
