About Preston Castle Foundation

The strikingly beautiful Romanesque style Preston Castle, on a hill in Ione, was actually the administration building for the Preston School of Industry, the first major attempt in California at rehabilitating, instead of just impris­­­oning, young offenders.  Opened in 1894, the Preston School of Industry became a leader in the juvenile prison reform movement by giving convicted boys a real chance at life by educating them not only in academics, but in all of the useful trades of the time.  Closed in 1960, when the Preston Youth Authority moved into a new administration building down the hill, the Preston Castle was left to deteriorate due to weather, vandalism, and general neglect.  It now serves as a vacant, but vitally important landmark for Ione, Amador County, and the Motherlode.  It is a California State Historic Landmark and is on the National Register of Historic Places.

 

The Mission of the Preston Castle Foundation is to preserve, rehabilitate, and utilize the historic Preston Castle site.  We are pushing hard to satisfy a few remaining issues that will result in acquiring the title to the property.  To help raise money for this important project, the Foundation sponsors several fund raising events throughout the year.  The PCF is still not allowed to bring guests inside the Castle, but outside events are permitted.  We continue to work with the State Fire Marshal on an acceptable solution as well as with our landlord, the State of California, to obtain the deed to the property.
