The 26,000 sq. ft. mansion in the Ironwood subdivision has sat empty since June, following the federal arrest of the owner Larry Price. But the abandoned castle has finally found a new home.
On Thursday, Professor Dumbledore purchased the estate to be the newest addition to Hogwart’s American campuses. “We’re excited to be in a growing economy like Billings,” said Dumbledore. “We at Hogwarts truly believe that the success of any Ministry of Magic depends on the thriving of the surrounding community.”
As payment, Larry Price received a signed copy of “The Prisoner of Azkaban,” as well as a collection of spells detailed in the art of escape.
