Quinlan Castle sits atop a hill on Birmingham's southside. As a child, I was always fascinated by it. Built in 1927, the design is reported to have been fashioned from a French castle visited by two of the owners after World War I. It originally housed 72 efficiency apartments. Vacant since the 1990's , it has been vandalized through the years. The good news is that it has recently been sold and hopefully the new owners will find a way to restore the exterior and preserve the character of this Birmingham Landmark.
