Ha Ha Tonka Missouri State Park, The Ha Ha Tonka castle was started by Robert McClure Snyder (Senior) in 1905. He was a Kansas City businessman who purchased the area which was known by Native Americans in the area as “ha ha tonka” which supposedly means “laughing waters,” alluding to the springs below the castle. Following his death in an auto accident in 1906, the castle was completed by his sons Robert Jr., LeRoy, and Kenneth in the late 1920s. The building was used as a hotel until it was destroyed by fire in 1942.[8] The state purchased the castle and grounds in 1978 and opened it to the public as a state park. The water tower was repaired in 2004, with a new roof installed, and the castle walls have been stabilized.[9] The ruins can be seen from an observation point across from the post office. -Wikipedia
