Have you ever been given a castle as a gift? Fort Wayne has! The Castle Gallery, at 1202 W. Wayne St., is an exquisite home that was built and given to B. Paul Mossman and his wife as a wedding gift in 1905. The building has served many purposes over the years, such as being the former site of the Fort Wayne Museum of Art, then apartments, and now a residence/art gallery. The Romanesque architecture and abundance of stained glass windows really were impressive! This setting makes it the ideal place for artist receptions, which occur throughout the year. (View past and current exhibitions here.) Also, the third floor, which now serves as the owners’ living room quarters, has been entirely renovated into a homey, modern loft, and it accommodates visiting artists with full amenities. The Castle Gallery is located at 1202 W. Wayne St., in the West Central Neighborhood. It’s within walking distance of the downtown district, the Carole Lombard house, and the following renowned restaurants: Henry’s, Das Schnitzelhaus, and Paula’s. You can visit it on Facebook here, online here, or call ahead at 260-426-6568 and toll free at 866-726-3699. You can also email the Gallery at firstname.lastname@example.org. Open Tuesday – Saturday, 11:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m. Free admission!
