The Bannerman Castle Trust, Inc. is the official New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation’s (NYSOPRHP’s) “Friends” organization for Bannerman Castle on Pollepel Island and a 501(c)(3) charitable organization.
The Trust is dedicated to preserving Bannerman Castle as an educational, cultural, historical, and recreational facility that promotes heritage tourism in the Hudson Valley. To that end, we aim to coordinate resources and funding to stabilize the structures on Pollepel Island so that the island is a safe and lasting destination for public tours and special events. We are also responsible for arranging public tours of the island each year; performing docks, trails, and gardens maintenance; and conducting other special projects (for example, preparation of Historic Structures Reports to document the history of the Castle) under the purview of the NYSOPRHP.
