Why We Love Castle Hills – Nod to King Arthur
The name Castle Hills was chosen to evoke the idea of home as a castle while also referring to the area’s natural rolling landscape. The name is also a nod to the late Bright family patriarch, H.R. “Bum” Bright, and his love of Arthurian legend. As a child, Bum loved reading the tales of King Arthur, Merlin, Lancelot and the sword Excalibur. Bum specifically cited the positive character traits extolled through tales of the Knights of the Round Table, like humility, kindness and loyalty. As a result, streets, parks, lakes and other landmarks in Castle Hills are named after references to Arthurian legend. Read more “fun stuff” about Castle Hills here.
