This is a castle a guy built to use as a target for his trebuchet (catapult) 'Yankee Siege'. In the fall he does demonstrations tossing pumpkins at it.

I can't find the actual catapult around anywhere though.

The trebuchet "Yankee Siege" is in the clearing South of the castle. It's still packed for transport on it's trailer but you can make out the 10 foot diameter wheels and 9 ton counterweight box pretty well. If you google it, you'll find plenty of pictures.

Thanks. I saw that but it didn't match the pictures of it that I could find. but I still thought it might be it. "Packed up" makes sense tough.

Could be this one... Or perhaps a little far.

That castle has nothing to do with being a target...it's a tourist attraction to go with the Siege. those pumpkins are at least 60 to 80' overhead when they go past it. The Siege is shootin' 'em over 1500' and landing them in the field behind my house.
