Hospitality: The Legacy of the Castle

Courtyard Reception

The Castle was originally built for elegant entertaining in 1894, then in 1947, it became a destination restaurant and event venue known as the Castle Tea Room. In 2009, the Castle Tea Room was lovingly restored and reopened as a special event venue thanks to the vision of its previous owner Libuse Kriz-Fiorito.

Libuse Kriz-Fiorito created the Libuse Kriz-Fiorito Historical Foundation in 1992 and moved both the Castle and her estate into the foundation with the following goals:

  • To maintain the physical structure of the Castle for future generations.
  • To preserve and promote the Castle’s unique history and heritage.
  • To maintain access to the Castle for the public’s use, enjoyment and education.

Our operating principles are simple: to work with the public to host outstanding events at the Castle, always keep a protective eye on the maintenance of the original structure, to share the story of the history and legacy of the Castle and the people who owned it over the years and provide programing in keeping with the ideals of Libuse Kriz-Fiorito.
