Step into the castle and step back in time to a home modeled after a fifth-century castle built near Nuremberg, Germany. Crafted in the 1920s in Jackson, Michigan by eccentric concert violinist Max Helmer, the local Liberace of his day, the Castle’s fascination, history and folklore are legendary. Situated on a private 20-acre estate, with nearly a mile of scenic driveways through a beautiful hardwood forest, the legendary “Castle”, as it’s known in the state is located on the highest point in south central lower Michigan.
