Boldt Castle is a major landmark in the Thousand Oaks region of New York, located on Heart Island just along the Saint Lawrence River. Formerly a private mansion built between 1900 and 1904 by George Boldt, the general manager of the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel and the Bellevue-Stratford Hotel, as a gift to his wife, the castle came into the ownership of the Thousand Islands Bridge Authority in 1977 at the purchase price of one dollar. Today the castle is a prominent tourist attraction.
