Completed in just under 11 months in 1903, the impressive Scottish-style Joslyn Castle is located right outside Omaha, Nebraska. Built by George and Sarah Joslyn, the castle cost $250,000 at the time, which translates into roughly $6 million today, adjusted for inflation. Built of limestone, the 19,360-square-foot home contains 35 rooms, including a reception hall, music room, library, ballroom, and drawing room, and is richly decorated with mosaics, wrought iron, carved wood, stained glass, and chiseled stone. From 1944 to 1989, Joslyn Castle served as the ritzy headquarters of the Omaha Public School District, but today, the Joslyn Castle Trust owns and maintains the structure, which is open for viewing several days each month.
