Castle Island’s faces feature an illustrious and notorious history in writing and action. East Carolina University’s Maritime Studies department documented information about wrecked ships in the area in their report “The Castle Island’s Ships Graveyard.” The Civil War-era encampment site for Yankees can also claim goats as its first inhabitants. Terry Rollins’ Washington Haunts tours points to a notorious past in a madam, known as the “Queen on the Castle,” reputed to inhabit the Island in spirit. As for the printed reproductions of postcards from UNC-CH’s collection and a painting in Washington’s Brown Library accompanying the article, they can speak a thousand words about the Island’s colorful past.
