Blackwater Castle

Blackwater Castle was purchased in 1991 by Mrs. Ninna Nordstrom and the late Dr. Rabbe Nordstrom. The philanthropic Nordstrom family, originally from Finland, saw the unique potential of Blackwater Castle and established the Nordstrom Family Trust with the objective of using Blackwater Castle as a tool to advance art and culture and scientific research and development and of course to preserve the magnificent heritage of the site. Sadly Dr. Rabbe Nordstrom, a surgeon engaged in cancer research, died suddenly in 1998. He had made significant strides in the pharmaceutical industry in the development of a drug used to arrest cancer growth in terminally ill cancer patients and ultimately he had hoped to produce this drug in a purpose built plant on fields adjoining the Castle. The project envisaged Blackwater Castle as a thriving commercial centre at the heart of the enterprise and that it would also have served as a private retreat for researchers to carry on further study. Dr. Nordstrom’s early death heralded the end of the pharmaceutical project but his vision to preserve and maintain the estate has been continued by the family trust. This vision and ambition continue to be advanced by his wife Ninna and son Patrick who now manages Blackwater Castle with his wife Sheila.
