castle architecture. Check out these 20th century beauties:
- Boldt Castle, started in 1900 by multi-millionaire George Boldt
- Oheka Castle, completed in 1919 by Wall Street wizard Otto Kahn
- Hearst Castle, designed by architect Julia Morgan for the publishing giant William Randolph Hearst, and completed in 1939
