Christmas Castle


To many people, it's a little known fact that BU has a small Tudor-style castle right on campus. Once the President's house and now a venue for events and a pub in the basement, the building's regal facade sticks out in stark contrast to the modern architecture of our urban campus. 

Rumor has is it that the castle was built by a wealthy Bostonian, William Lindsey, as a wedding present for his daughter. Unfortunately, Lindsey's daughter and her husband died on their honeymoon     and the house was eventually donated to BU. The BU Castle or simply the "Castle" as we call it on campus, truly adds to the unique style of our non-traditional campus. It's also one of the few castles in all of Massachusetts and was used in the film, 21.
