VERSAILLES, Ky. (WYMT/WKYT) - The Kentucky Castle in Versailles is celebrating 50 years.
“We do so much here because we know there is a passion for this place in this community,” said Erin Kuss, a tour guide on the grounds.
WKYT reports Rex Martin built the castle for his wife in 1969. The two divorced and Martin sold the property about 30 years later.
A fire destroyed the inside of the castle in 2004, leaving only the outside walls.
The castle is now a luxury hotel, restaurant, and event center.
