The hospitality company with ties to Angel’s Envy has purchased the Kentucky Castle for a whopping $19 million.

According to the Herald-Leader, the 53-acre property in Woodford County was sold last week to TKC Hospitality Group, which is led by Angel’s Envy co-founder Wes Henderson.

Since 2017, the space has served as a wedding + event venue, hotel, and restaurant. Although concrete plans about the future of the castle have not been announced, a statement from TKC read:

“As Kentucky natives, TKC has always been a part of our lives as an iconic local landmark, and we are thrilled to be part of the next chapter, building upon the world class experience created by our predecessors.

Looking to the future, we will be collaborating with our neighbors in Pisgah, local businesses, schools, and the entire community, to maintain and grow the deep roots and legacy of this historic destination.”
