Day 139 – The Craigdarroch Castle Spoon

Nestled in a quaint neighborhood above the harbor in Victoria, British Columbia is Craigdarroch Castle, a 25,000 square foot mansion built for wealthy coal baron and local politician, Robert Dunsmuir and his family. Completed in 1890, the 39-room castle was home to Robert’s wife, Joan, for 18 years and after her death, served as military hospital and housed Victoria College for 25 years. 

We’ve visited the castle twice now, and although we didn’t see any ghosts, we did manage to find the gift shop, where I picked  up this spoon.
