This is a view from the southeast of the Ilion, constructed on the Mallory estate just north of Chariton during 1878-1880 to a design that probably can be attributed to Des Moines-based architect William Foster. Porches installed during 1896 along the mansion's west and south facades changed its looks substantially. The home was demolished during 1955. Posted by Picasa

I'm so happy to have come across the picture of the Mallory Castle. As a child a friend of mine and I visited the castle. In my mind I had tried all these years to remember what it looked like. I must have been very impressed with it at the time. Thanks for sharing!
