Gingerbread Castle in New Jersey

Updated: Jan 22, 2021

Did you know about the Gingerbread Castle in Hamburg, New Jersey? I came across this article in the July 8, 1948 edition of The Daily News, Tarrytown, New York, while I was researching my great-grandmother who lived in Hamburg for years until she died in 1951. I can't help but wonder if she ever visited this fairy tale attraction.

The place was originally Joseph Sharp's Iron Works, established 1768.

Scroll down for a video I found on YouTube, of what the place looks like today.
