Castle in the Clouds Restoration Progress

Restoration work has been a constant since Castle Preservation Society took over operation of the Castle in the Clouds in 2006.  We have completed about half of the restoration work identified in a 2005 conditions survey.  In June 2015 we launched a $3,000,000 Fund to Finish Capital Campaign so that the work can be completed. We’re halfway there! Please donate today!!
