MADAME SHERRI’S CASTLE RUINS
Madame Sherri’s Castle Ruins:
West Chesterfield, NH
Across the river from north Brattleboro, in West Chesterfield, New Hampshire, a trail winds through the Madame Sherri Forest to a set of ghostly stone stairs—the ruins of Madame Sherri’s castle, an estate whose former glory was lost to fire in 1962.
Madame Antoinette Sherri was a successful, eccentric New York costume designer who in 1927 built a château-style mansion outside Brattleboro, where she became notorious among the locals for her dazzling extravagance.
Brattleboro Historical Society was founded in 1982 as a non-profit organization by a group of local historians and civic leaders interested in Brattleboro’s past. The Society’s mission is the telling of Brattleboro's story. Join us!
