Hackney's Castle: An enigma

The Kilmarnock Museum is seeking information about Hackney’s Castle, which was located on Boys’ Camp property (Boys’ Camp Road) through the 1940’s.

Information is astoundingly limited about both the “Castle” as well as Armour Scull Hackney.  The lack of information is most glaring when trying to even confirm that Hackney even had ties to the region.  There is no census data to support him being in the area from 1885-1925 (the year of his death.)

If you, or anyone you know has any information regarding A.S. Hackney, or his castle, please call 804-296-0930.
