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.
WHY WE LOVE CASTLE HILLS – BUILT WITH LOVE
For nearly 70 years, Castle Hills has been the perfect place to enjoy life. It started long before the community was developed. In 1952, the Bright family acquired the first piece of property that makes up our wonderful community. The family enjoyed campouts, fishing, horseback riding and hunting on the land that would become Castle Hills. The developer’s hope is that Castle Hills will be a place for families to call home for generations to come.
