During his career as an actor, William Gillette portrayed world-renowned character Sherlock Holmes in more than 1,300 performances. His career as a playwright and actor afforded him the opportunity to purchase a 184-acre estate, where he also built a twenty-four-room medieval-style castle overlooking the Connecticut River. Since becoming a state park in 1943, it has evolved into one of Connecticut's most popular tourist attractions.
