Tragically, Mr. Dunsmuir passed away before the home’s completion, and only his wife, Joan, and some of their children and grandchildren ever actually lived in the home. After Joan’s death in 1908, the entire contents of the Castle were sold at an auction and the property was subdivided. The castle subsequently served as a military hospital, a college, school board offices, a music school and finally as a historic museum.

It's an easy walk up Fort Street to the castle. Then there's 4 floors with stairs no elevator so there's lots of walking. Beautiful castle that has been well maintained. It takes about an hour or so to go through and the docent is very knowledgeable and can answer any questions you have.
