First, we will visit Hammond Castle, built by Dr. J. Hammond, an author of over 400 patents and 800 inventions. You have the opportunity to visit a real castle and learn about castle life through an interactive presentation in the Great Hall, a tour of the castle that focuses on on both medieval life and the castle's unique collection of medieval artifacts and architecture, and a visit to the tower dungeon. The inventions room may be requested, but is not usually part of this tour. Then, we'll go to see Paper House, and then, we will be heading to the Halibut State Park and Granite Quarry.
