Now a state park, Ha Ha Tonka was once
an estate build around the turn of the century by a wealthy business
man. The estate, designed as a European-style castle, burned
in 1942 and was later turned into the centerpiece of the state park.

Tonka, including the castle, visit DNR's website
My great aunt, Esther, actually had
dinner in this castle, obviously before it burned.
