About Nemacolin Castle

How we got started...

When the last bowman, Leila, left the house to the county, she wanted it to become a museum.  Her wish would come true!  Nemacolin castle was first ran by The daughters of the American Revolution.  Now it is ran by the Brownsville Historical Society!  It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1975. It is located in the Brownsville Northside Historic District.

The Brownsville Historical Society is made up of several volunteers that work together to clean, preserve, and repair the castle.  Our tour guides go through an eight week training course to be able to provide a historically accurate tour.  We are always growing, changing, and improving your experience!  Want to become a volunteer?  For more information, visit our volunteer page!
