Bannerman Castle by John Morzen
As this year comes to a close and new one begins, we ask that you to please consider making a donation to the Bannerman Castle Trust. Support from people like you allow us to protect the remaining structures on the Island, maintain and expand its beautiful gardens, host public walking tours and cultural events on a regular basis, as well as preserve and add to its rich history on the beautiful Hudson River. No donation is too small or too large.

We wish you a happy holiday season and look forward to seeing you on the Island in 2016!
