  • El castillo Glen Eyrie es un palacio localizado en Colorado, Estados Unidos. Glen Eyrie fue construido por el general William Jackson Palmer, fundador de Colorado Springs. Esta fue la casa de sus sueños y está cerca de Colorado Springs, en las estribaciones del Jardín de las formaciones de roca de los dioses (en la actualidad un parque de la ciudad). Después de la construcción de una cochera grande, donde la familia vivió por un tiempo, Palmer y su esposa Mary Mellen construyeron una casa de madera de 22 habitaciones de 800 acres. Esta casa fue remodelada en 1881 para incluir una torre y algunas habitaciones adicionales, y hacer que se asemejara a un castillo de piedra, que recordara a todos los nativos de Inglaterra. En 1880, la señora Palmer sufrió un leve ataque al corazón y se le aconsejó trasladarse a una altitud más baja. Ella y las niñas se trasladaron a la Costa Este y luego a Inglaterra, donde el General Palmer la visitaba a menudo. La reina murió el 28 de diciembre de 1894, a la edad de 44 años. Glen Eyrie es también un centro de conferencias y retiros donde se organizan muchas conferencias y programas cristianos. Las manadas de pavos, ovejas, ciervos y otros animales a menudo se pueden encontrar pastando en los jardines. (es)

After building a large carriage house, where the family lived for a time, Palmer and his wife Mary (Queen) Mellen built a 22-room frame house on the 800-acre (3.2 km2) estate. This house was remodeled in 1881 to include a tower and additional rooms, and made to resemble a stone castle in 1903, reminiscent of those native to England. Queen Palmer, at age 21, opened the first public school in Colorado Springs in November 1871. The Palmers had three daughters, Elsie, Dorothy, and Marjory. In 1880, Mrs. Palmer suffered a mild heart attack and was advised to move to a lower altitude. She and the girls moved to the East Coast and then to England where General Palmer visited them as often as he could. Queen died on December 28, 1894, at the age of 44. In sorrow, General Palmer went to England to return Mrs. Palmer's remains and the girls to Colorado Springs. They at this time decided to tear down their home and in memory of his wife because she so enjoyed the feel of a castle home they re-built the 33,000 square foot castle for her. (en)
