Sarasota History - New Edzell Castle Interior photo

New Edzell Castle was built on what is now Bird Key, by Thomas Worcester, and named for his wife's ancestral home in Scotland. Unfortunately, she passed away just before its completion. Later, John Ringling purchased it and his sister Ida Ringling North lived in it until her death.
