Make sure to take a cruise to Boldt Castle on Heart Island located in Alexandria Bay, an eternal monument to the memory of a man's love for his wife. George C. Boldt was a millionare proprietor of the world famous Waldorf Astoria Hotel in New York City. In 1904 construction was well underway on the 120 room full size Rhineland Castle when tragedy struck. A telegram announcing the death of George C. Boldt's wife Louise arrived... Three hundred artisans and craftsmen from arround the world dropped their tools and left the island, never to return. A broken hearted Boldt could not imagine his dream castle without his beloved. Boldt never returned to the island, leaving behind the structure as a monument to his love. Today, an ongoing major restoration is underway to stabilize/restore this magnificent piece of island history.
