Castello Holford was an American writer best known for writing Aristopia in 1895. It is perhaps the first true alternative history novel to be written in English and imagines a utopian society founded by the first settlers of Virginia.[1]

He also wrote a 'History of Grant County, Wisconsin including its civil, political, geological, mineralogical, archaeological and military history, and a history of the several towns' in 1900.

He is the brother of Lyman D. Holford, 6th Wisconsin Volunteer Infantry of Tafton, Wisconsin and later Tulare, California.
