Leland Castle (also known as Castle View) is a 19th-century Gothic revival castle located on the campus of the College of New Rochelle in New Rochelle, New York. The castle was originally the residence of Simeon Leland, a wealthy New York City hotel proprietor. Mr. Leland began to assemble an estate as early as 1848, and in 1855 began the erection of a palatial mansion of sixty rooms. The home was designed by New York City architect William Thomas Beers. A north and south wing were added to the castle in 1899 and 1902 respectively.
