Curwood Castle , located along the Shiawassee River near the Shiawassee Arts Center, is the 7th most visited historical site in the State of Michigan. Built in 1922 by James Oliver Curwood (1978-1927), a conservationist and author of more then 30 adventure books set in northern Canada, the Castle served as the writer’s private studio during the last five years of his life. Curwood once said,” Owosso is the nicest place in the world. I was born there and I hope to die there. It’s American and it makes you feel at home.”
The Castle is a replica of a 15th century Norman chateau, constructed of stucco and fieldstones that were chosen by Curwood himself. The roof is slate with copper trim. The walls are 16″ thick. The main floor of the building boasts a great room with an Italian marble fireplace. It was here that Curwood entertained guest, including movie producers engaged in making films based on his stories. The large, two-story turret was designated as Curwood’s writing study. The circular room in the lower level under the turret Curwood fancifully called the “dungeon keep.”
