About Berkeley Castle

The English-Norman Berkeley Castle, a National and West Virginia registered historical landmark, was built by Colonel Samuel Taylor Suite between 1885 and 1891. Colonel Suit was a wealthy businessman who fought in the Civil War.

The castle foundation was laid in 1885. About 100 German masons worked on the Castle until its completion in 1891. Built of silica sandstone, each stone was hand-cut from the local area and carried to the site by horse and wagon. Unfortunately, Suit did not live to see his castle completed-he died just before the six-year project was finished. Colonel Suit's Will stipulated that his young wife had to complete the task in order to inherit his fortune, so she did.
