Penniman Castle
Posted August 2, 2011, by doug Kidder (2th maker69 [at] gmail [dot] com)

Hello, I owned Penniman Castle from the early 90's approx. 10 years. The foundation is not stone as stated on this site but poured concrete, like a modern house. The basement is also a full basement with the exception of the butlers pantry( between the dinning room and kitchen).The walls of the basement were also plastered. If you would like to know anything else about this very enigmatic house please feel free to E-mail me( construction,secret writings on the walls under the wallpapers, haughtings, etc.I restored the houses interior, and filled out the paper work for the national register status.Doug Kidder PhD. e-mail: 2thmaker69@gmail.com
