Mount Woodson Castle
Five years in the making, Amy Irene Strong completed this structure in the small town of Ramona, 45 minutes from downtown, in 1921. The unique Craftsman-style 12,000-square-foot dwelling was originally designed by Strong herself, a prominent San Diego socialite and dress designer. Owned by many throughout the years, it is now the property of Mt. Woodson Golf Club and serves as a frequent site for weddings and special events. Also known as the Amy Strong Castle, this building is now used as the administration office and can be viewed during operating hours.
Wow - I lived there in the 80's and it was haunted! I had horses and the acreage was a big pasture that the golf course is now on. All of my furniture fit into one of the massive bedrooms there. I am sure the ghosts have moved on by now, but they kept me awake at night!
I lived here for almost a year in college at San Diego State. Awesome. There were no other houses at the time and no golf course. It was still way out in the country. I lived there alone and had some great parties there too. Wonderful place to entertain. I wish i could buy it now for my wife and 8 kids to live in! Beautiful! The year of visit option only goes back to 2005. i was there in 1981/1982.
I can't wait to go back, love the horoscope designs, rock pictographs, and the fact that Helen Hunt Jackson, Mrs.Winchester,Emily Dickinson,Amy Strong and a few others used to meet here once or twice a year in a special room, I am of Dutch descent and hope to get a special invite, the other day I met a man that looked almost identical to the Owner of Villa Montezuma(Historical Home) in San Diego! A Spirit too!! With very large eyes!!....Can't forget the most beautiful gardens that encircle this Dutch Wonder of a Castle.Historically Huge in my Book!! E.A.Zellner(Mussey Grade Rd.)
