Strong, publisher of the Chicago Daily News, purchased 360 acres and built Stronghold Castle in 1928-1929. Mr. Strong died in May 1931. In 1962, after Mrs. Strong died, the Presbytery of Blackhawk of PC (USA) bought the property. The murals in the castle were painted by Russian artist Nicholas Kaissakoff.
