"Completed in 1890, the fortune amassed by coal baron Robert Dunsmuir is refleted in the Castle's four floors of exquisite stained glass, intricate woodwoork and lavish Victorian-era furnishings. The original estate extended over 28 acres

Since Joan Dunsmuir's death in 1908, the Castle has been used as: Craigdarroch Military Hospital; Victoria College; offices for the Victoria School Board; Victoria Conservatory of Music; and finally as Craigdarroch Castle Historic House Museum."
