The Nemacolin Castle was built in 1789, in Brownsville, Pennsylvania, at the western terminus of the Nemacolin Trail on the east bank of the Monongahela River. It was constructed by Jacob Bowman shortly after the American Revolutionary War that lasted from April 19th, 1775 to September 3rd, 1783. It was built near the site of Fort Burd, and British colonies during the French and Indian War built the crenelated tower, and it was considered an engineering marvel. In the house three generations of the Bowman family lived there, and were the only ones to live in the castle. Sometime around 1789, Jacob and his wife started to build the first part of the structure with a trading post on the ground floor, and they also added a room, and a broad hallway because they needed more room. Jacob and his wife had nine children, but when he died in 1847, he left the house to his son Nelson, he also then added the east wing, and the tower to the castle when he married Elizabeth. He then updated the nursery to a Victorian style nursery, and Nelson had six children, but only two survived to adulthood. When Nelson died in 1892, he left the house to their son Charles, and Charles lived at the castle with his wife Leila until his death, a while later she died also, and years later the National Historical Society purchased the house, and they opened it to the public as a museum.
