BAKERSFIELD, CA -- Gertha in Bakersfield asks, what's the story behind a castle on Breckinridge Road. She's referring to the structure on the corner of Breckinridge and Fairy Tale Lane, east of Bakersfield city limits.

Our News Photographer Cesar Espinoza checked it out Thursday.  He learned the building was part of a popular old Christmas tree farm, called "Enchanted Forest."   A fire in 2005, and other factors forced the business to close.

We contacted the county planning department to find out more about the building -- and any future plans for the site -- But our calls have not been returned.
