ALEXANDRIA BAY — The Thousand Islands region landmark Boldt Castle on Heart Island opens today for its 2014 tourist season.

The castle and the Boldt Yacht House across the St. Lawrence River on Wellesley Island will both be open daily through Oct. 19.

Since acquiring the historic properties in 1977, the Thousand Islands Bridge Authority has been renovating the Boldt facilities and completing the castle that millionaire proprietor George C. Boldt halted construction on following the death of his wife, Louise.

Boldt Castle’s kitchen is being restored and is anticipated to be completed in September. Rehabilitation of Heart Island’s Alster Tower, aka “Children’s Playhouse,” also is moving forward, and the bridge authority plans to begin designing the tower’s interior this year.

For more information, call Boldt facilities staff at 482-2501 or visit the castle’s website at
