What's it like to renovate a haunted "castle"? That's what award winning documentary THE CASTLE PROJECT is all about.

The historic Croke-Patterson Mansion in Denver has long been rumored to be haunted by the cries of disembodied infants. The original owner built the Chateauesque home in 1891 and lived there for six months before falling victim to the Silver Crash of 1893. Ill fortune visited subsequent owners during the 120-year-long history of the house as they experienced otherworldly phenomena that included apparitions, whispering voices, peculiar odors, failed exorcisms and guard dogs jumping through windows to their death.

When architect Brian Higgins and partners purchased the home for renovation, they were skeptical about its tragic past. But soon workers began to experience sightings of ghostly children, unusual temperature changes and whispering voices. Workers fell ill and one team member died while an unexplained fire threatened the project’s completion.

Paranormal investigators were brought in and they identify several generations of spirits who remained trapped in the house. Higgins had the foresight to begin filming, and after several hair-raising nights spent alone in the building, he began to wonder if there was a reason why souls never checked out at the Croke-Patterson Mansion.

Brian Higgins (Director / Producer) is an award winning architect, filmmaker and Emmy nominated television host and cinematographer. Born and raised in Denver, he rediscovered the Croke Patterson Mansion, bought it, designed the renovation and now owns the hotel. He recognized the opportunity for filming a documentary and THE CASTLE PROJECT was born.
