Pythian Castle - Springfield, Missouri

Springfield's Pythian Castle was built by the Knights of Pythias in 1913. It originally
served as an orphanage and a retirement home for members of the order. In 1942, the
U.S. Military used it as a rehabilitation facility for wounded servicemen. During this time
the castle's dungeons also held WWII POWs. Today the Pythian Castle hosts tours,
dinner theater, ballroom dancing, weddings, and many other events.
