James Castle is one of the most unlikely and enigmatic American artists of the twentieth century. He was born on a farm in Garden Valley, 50 miles northwest of this site, and lived there and in Star, Idaho during his youth, before moving to this house with his family in 1931. The James Castle House stands today as a testament to the artist's unique talent and artistic legacy.
