Ozark Medieval Fortress

Castle restorer Michel Guyot (previously at Neatorama) is heading a project to build a medieval fortress in ... Arkansas!
Thirty masons, carpenters and stone carvers authentically dressed, will work all year round for twenty years, the time required to build a fortress in the Middle Ages. Imagine a place where you leave behind our technically advanced society to hear the clang of hammers on chisels as stones are being carved, and to hear snorting cart-horses pulling heavy stones on creaking wooden wagons. The blacksmith, the rope maker, the woodcutter will work right in front of you as they practise medieval techniques of construction.

The Ozark Medieval Fortress is now open for tours. Groups rates are available. Link -via Metafilter

This is SO COOL! I just heard about the castle on NPR this evening on Michael Feldman's "Whattaya Know". We live in Los Angeles so I don't know when we'll be able to visit. I would love to see it.
