Visit Madame Sherri’s Castle Ruins in Brattleboro, Vermont

Posted on

Foggy forest path to the castleExplore Madame Sherri’s Castle ruins and travel back in time to the roaring 1920’s. Just a 12 minute drive from the charming Inn on Putney Road find the mysterious remains of a lavish life. Within the Madame Sherri Forest, the Ann Stoke Loop Trail leads to the skeleton of a magnificent house. When approaching the ruins, hikers first notice a massive stone staircase curving up into the forest canopy. Further exploration reveals the castle’s remaining stone columns, fireplace and lower level with great archways. This was once the home of Madame Antoinette Sherri, an eccentric costume designer from New York. The grand lady threw “Great Gatsby” style parties here during the late 1920’s. After years of reckless spending, Madame Sherri abandoned the house and sadly it burned down in 1962. The site is a favorite of photographers, ghost hunters and local lore enthusiasts.
