We also saw "Frogmore House" from a distance. Frogmore is a 17th-century house located in the middle of a large estate. The house is set far back from the road and has a lot of gardens. It's located about a half-mile from Windsor Castle. We didn't get out and walk to it because it was quite a distance, and we wanted to see the rest of the town before other things closed. We also had to make sure we got to the local library where we could connect to the Internet and check in for our flights, and that closed at 5 p.m.

The original house on the site was a farmhouse known as Gwynn's Farm and then Frogmore Farm. It was rented from the Crown by the Gwynn family, followed by their heirs, the Aldworths. The present Frogmore House was built in 1680–1684. Frogmore was purchased by King George III as a country retreat for Queen Charlotte in 1792. Today, Frogmore House is no longer a Royal residence, but the house and gardens are sometimes used by the Royal Family for official purposes such as receptions.

NO FROGMORE GHOSTLY LEGENDSI've been unable to learn of any ghosts haunting Frogmore. Maybe that's because it hasn't been investigated. I'm sure there could be something lingering in there. Regardless, there was ONE MORE GHOST that we encountered in Windsor. Stay tuned for that one.
