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 caslte.

We were able to tour and take photos. But our favorite part was we got to explore.


Fighting/training area

Formal dining room

Lunch was provided in the cost of the tour.

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.

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?

For more information and to book your adventure go to:
