Castle Automart

This old house is a well-known landmark in New Haven, the small town on the eastern edge of Fort Wayne, Indiana. The house, located on State Road 930 (Lincoln Highway), was built in the 19th Century to look like a medieval castle.

As long as I can remember, it has been used as a business location, rather than a home. The area where it is located became heavily industrialized in the mid-20th Century, and the house is surrounded by car dealers, trucking companies, and factories.

It is currently a used car lot called Castle Automart. The owner is an Iranian-American named Tony who came to the United States to go to school in the 1970s. He loved it here, and decided to stay after finishing his education. Tony spent a lot of time talking with me about the Castle's history; he bought it because he loved the old building's distinctive architecture.

All of my prints are available framed or unframed. I use black metal Neilsen & Bainbridge frames with white cotton unbuffered museum board for the mat and backing board for maximum archival protection. Photographs are printed on an Epson pigment printer using Epson's archival ultrachrome inset for long life.
