Head north of the border for a look at two of the most extraordinary mansions in North America-the Canadian castles of Casa Loma and Parkwood.

One is a 98-room fantasy abandoned by its owners after a decade. The other a technological marvel years ahead of its time.

AMERICA'S CASTLES goes north of the border for this privileged, behind-the-scenes tour of Casa Loma and the Parkwood Estate.

Henry Pellatt built a fortune in hydroelectricity, and celebrated his wealth with an extravagant walled castle named Casa Loma. Now, the mansion - with its six acres, stables and private hunting lodge - is one of the nation's most popular attractions, hosting over 350,000 visitors annually.

The fabulous Parkwood Estate was an appropriate home for the forward-looking industrialist Colonel Robert Samuel McLaughlin. Built in 1916, the 55-room mansion has a built-in vacuum system, an electric elevator and even a bowling alley!

Curators, experts and the people who lived there help tell the rich stories of the Canadian Castles.
