The "castle" at Ha Ha Tonka State Park in Missouri was constructed beginning in 1904 as a private estate. Fire consumed the main house in the 1920's, leaving the shell of "the castle" as locals know it. The State of Missouri acquired the property and several hundred acres in 1978 and created Ha Ha Tonka State Park.
