Foster Family

Once the property of the Foster family, this park housed an elegant mansion in its expansive grounds, fondly referred to by locals as “Littlemoor Castle” due to its striking resemblance to one. Littlemore Castle graced Queensbury for a mere 45 years. Constructed in 1891 for Herbert Anderton Foster, the grandson of John Foster, the visionary behind Queensbury’s renowned Black Dyke Mills.

The mansion had 40 bedrooms, a basement with a tiled pool, and unique features like a billiard room organ and a conservatory with a thriving banana tree. The 30-acre park included a pond with sticklebacks and occasional trout, drawing winter skaters.
