Castle Knoll is located at 901 West High Street in Springfield, Ohio (Clark County).
Castle Knoll is now abandoned, but it has been used for several purposes over the years. It was originally built as the third home on High Street for Phineas P. Mast, a wealthy resident. It was built between 1880-1882 at a cost of $250,000. Cabinet makers and stone masons were brought in from Italy to construct the home. There are also many beautiful stained glass windows that were imported from France.
The mansion was later purchased and used by the Knights of Pythias, a fraternal organization. It was their Ohio Pythian Home for the Aged. After they moved out, it was used as a nursing facility that gave it the present name of Castle Knoll.
