Explore the Joslyn family's lasting legacy in Omaha by taking a tour through their home or attending a Joslyn Castle event.
Welcome to Omaha's Joslyn Castle, the locally beloved historic mansion that once belonged to George and Sarah Joslyn.
The Joslyn Castle is located within the Gold Coast Historic District and was first built in 1903. This home was built in the Scottish Baronial style, inspired by Scottish castles and gardens. The stunning architectural elements throughout the home will certainly impress any guest, the unique style featuring things such as crow-stepped gables and crenellations, the interior featuring delicately carved wood, stained glass, chiseled stone, and wrought iron. The home was built out of Kansas Silverdale Limestone.
During your visit, your group will take a tour of the interior of the home, which features 36 rooms amongst 4 stories. See the reception hall, ballroom, music room, library, and gold drawing-room, as well as many, many more. The home serves as a physical reminder of the immense philanthropic legacies of the original residents, the Joslyn's, who once said 'the possession of great wealth is a great trust and obligation'. By exploring their home you will be able to learn bits and pieces about the family, local history, culture, art, nature, architecture, and more.
