I’m always amazed at the finds that are here in Texas.
Since moving here, one find that I was thought most interesting was that there are quite a number of castles in Texas.
Yes, castles you heard me correctly. We went to visit one of those castles, Newman’s Castle.
Mike Newman, the owner of Newman’s bakery is also the creative genius behind Newman’s Castle. Bringing new meaning to a man’s home is his castle.
We were able to tour and take photos. But our favorite part was we got to explore.
Formal dining room
Lunch was provided in the cost of the tour.
Fresh baked donuts
Handmade mote and drawbridge
The castle, which is 3400 square feet. Was built by hand
We got to watch and be a part of the closing of the drawbridge which weighs in at 3000 pounds.
The kids enjoyed being hamsters in the wheel.
I am always getting in to a little trouble.
We got to spin him around. It’s supposed to be a torture device and he thought it was better as a ride

Bell Tower behind the main house stands at 62 feet
Each tour of the castle is led by Mike with a bit of history and his adventure in building his home.
Newman’s Castle in Bellville Texas is a fun family trip. Donuts and castles. Who could ask for more?
