The Castle is truly a one-of-a kind facility. It was constructed in 1903-1904 as the Grant County Jail and was used until 1981 when a new jail was constructed. Idled by the county and in disrepair, the Castle was aquired by private investors and was completely remodeled into apartments in December 2000.
The facility now consists of eleven, two-bedroom units, twelve, one-bedroom units and one studio unit. There is also a free laundry facility available to all residents of the Castle.
The facility consists of two interconnected buildings, the former jail and the former sheriff's quarters. All the steel bars of the former jail have been removed and replaced with new insulated windows. Extensive remodeling was done to create unique one-of-kind multi room spaces. New carpet, climate systems, appliances and of course fresh paint adorn each unit. Each kitchen also includes a built-in dishwasher. For your protection, a 16 camera video surveillance system records the entire facility's hallways, entryways and exterior grounds.
Located in the heart of downtown Marion, Indiana, the Castle is within three blocks of a new YMCA facility, four restaurants, numerous retail stores and a river walk which leads over two miles to one of the city's finest parks. Centrally located, newly updated in 2007 with history and charm unmatched by any apartment buiilding in Indiana, the Castle apartments and condos could be your next address.
