Cool little castle. Much smaller than I thought, but worth the $2.00 admission.

The writing studio of James Oliver Curwood was built it in 1922. There's a nice park there, the Shiawassee Arts Center (free gallery), and a log cabin.

Curwood Castle, Curwood Days
Owosso is the home of Curwood Castle, made by James Oliver Curwood, author. He wrote the book that was turned into the movie released many years ago called "The Bear." The castle is 3 stories high and is on the Shiawassee River. It's worth checking out. The castle is directly behind the Junior High School, across the river. Curwood is the theme for our town's yearly festival, "Curwood Days."
