Sullivan family builds castle for community


SULLIVAN Co., Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) — A Sullivan County family built a castle, called the Overton Castle.

It started out as a project of their grandkids.

Colleen Overton said she wanted a playset for her grandchildren when they visit.

After mentioning it to her husband Robin, who is an artist, they created a masterpiece for the entire community to use.

There are two towers and each with two bunk beds and medieval artifacts inside like swords, old letters and a knight’s amour suit.

The Overtons said their favorite part is watching people from all over the community come and enjoy it.

“It is awesome. It’s just a place they can just come and bring their kids,” Colleen said.

Robin Overton said he would love to add on a dining hall that can sit up to 15 people.
