Library, Wilson Castle, Proctor VT

"Library showing original furniture, hand painted ceilings, Tiffany gas lighting fixtures."

From the 1880’s until 1939, the castle was bought & sold 4 times. In 1939, a radio engineer named Herbert Lee Wilson, came to Vermont. He was a pioneer in the AM radio field and built radio stations all over the world. He was looking for a new location to build another station and a summer home for his family. He bought the castle & installed radio station WEWE in the old stable, which remains in operation. [SOURCE] [LIB1671]
