Ha Ha Tonka Castle Ruins
At the beginning of the 1900s, Robert McClure Snyder, a Kansas City businessman, visited the area. He bought over 5000 acres and began construction of his dream, a magnificent European-style mansion or "castle." Material for the mansion, including the sandstone, walnut and oak lumber, came from the area. A stone stable, an 80-foot water tower and nine greenhouses were built to attend the main house. By 1906, one year after construction began, Snyder was killed in an automobile accident. The interior of the castle remained unfinished until his sons completed it in 1922. On Oct 21, 1942, the castle and stable were destroyed by fire. In 1976 the water tower was damaged by fire. Today, the stark exterior stone walls of the castle, stable and water tower are all that remain of one man's dream.

More About USA

The United States is one of the most diverse countries on earth, jam packed full of amazing sights from St. Patrick's cathedral in New York to Mount Hollywood California.The Northeast region is where it all started. Thirteen British colonies fought the American Revolution from here and won their independence in the first successful colonial rebellion in history. Take a look at these rolling hills carpeted with foliage along the Hudson river here, north of New York City.The American south is known for its polite people and slow pace of life. Probably they move slowly because it's so hot. Southerners tend not to trust people from "up north" because they talk too fast. Here's a cemetery in Georgia where you can find graves of soldiers from the Civil War.The West Coast is sort of like another country that exists to make the east coast jealous. California is full of nothing but grizzly old miners digging for gold, a few gangster rappers, and then actors. That is to say, the West Coast functions as the imagination of the US, like a weird little brother who teases everybody then gets famous for making freaky art.The central part of the country is flat farmland all the way over to the Rocky Mountains. Up in the northwest corner you can find creative people in places like Portland and Seattle, along with awesome snowboarding and good beer. Text by Steve Smith.
