In Hamburg, New Jersey there is a gingerbread castle.The Gingerbread Castle sits silently at the end of a driveway surrounded not by a moat but by barbed wire fencing and ‘do not trespass’ signs.Once upon a time, back in the late 1920’s, the Gingerbread Castle was the centerpiece of an amusement park built next to the Wheatsworth Mill. The Gingerbread Castle was in continuous operation until 1978… it reopened briefly in the ’80’s and then closed for good in 1989.Fairy tale characters used to abound here… now, sitting alone on his wall only Humpty Dumpty remains.
The Gingerbread Castle is slowly fading away…eventually only memories will remain.Sadly there is no happy ending … just, the end.
