    The video for the Godsmack song 'Voodoo' was filmed on location in the castle.

    Do you want to visit a medieval castle without going to Europe? Then Hammond Castle is the place to go.

John Hays Hammond was a very prolific and successful inventor (father of the Radio control) he was also an eclectic collector of ancient, medieval and renaissance artifacts. His love for the antique didn't stop at the collecting but went so far that he wanted a proper housing for his passion. He built a "real" castle...Read More

Do you want to visit a medieval castle without going to Europe? Then Hammond Castle is the place to go. Built between 1926 and 1929 (sorry it is not really medieval...) by John Hays Hammond this mansion is a real experience to visit. John Hays Hammond was a very prolific and successful inventor (father of the Radio control) he was also an eclectic collector of ancient, medieval and renaissance artifacts. His love for the antique didn't stop at the collecting but went so far that he wanted a proper housing for his passion. He built a "real" castle in the middle of New England.
The mansion is located at 80 Hesperus Ave. Gloucester, MA and it is now a museum. The admission fee is $10 for a self guided tour. On Thursdays night there is a guided visit. The museum is closed on Mondays. It is a place that is really nice to visit with your kids, they will love the narrow hallways, secret passages, the big hall with a real pipe organ and the whole atmosphere is just magic. The grounds have some really nice views of the Gloucester bay and the ocean.
