Castle History Museum
The Historical Loveland Castle & Museum

Chateau Laroche was built as an expression and reminder of the simple strength and rugged grandeur of the mighty men who lived when Knighthood was in flower.

It was their knightly zeal for honor, valor and manly purity that lifted mankind out of the moral midnight of the dark ages and started it towards the gray dawn of human hope.

Present human decadence proves a need for similar action.

Already the ancient organization of Knights have been re-activated to save society.

Any man of high ideas who wishes to help save civilization is invited to become a member of the Knights of the Golden Trail, whose only vows are the Ten Commandments.

Chateau Laroche is the World headquarters of this organization, started in 1927.

  • What a neat Castle in Loveland. Mr. Andrews spent years building this castle. They have a video of an interview he did telling about how he built this all by himself, carrying rocks from the river in ...  more »

  • I love European history and as some one who has always wanted to travel but couldn't afford it, this place makes you feel like you are in another country. The owners are full of information about the castle there's games and puzzles as well as a tv explain the detailed history behind the castle. Can't express how beautiful and breathtaking the sight is. All for $5 , completely worth it.
  • This place isn't super overwhelming, but the story behind the castle makes the trip kind of worth it if you're in the area. Built from the ground up, the original owner laid stone atop stone to make this castle. From the foundation to the doors to the windows, everything was installed by hand. The front door is a charging door meant to withstand an attack on the castle. The whole place lacks central heating, so it can get a little chilly. The castle roof will seem funny as it was built such that more floors could be added. Possibly the coolest thing is that a ghost has inhabited the castle long before the original owner died. Nobody has died in the castle itself, so the ghost comes from the land. Even the past owner didn't wish to be buried at his own castle as a ghost already lived in it.
  • We found this gem by accident. Cost was only $5.00 a person. Volunteer staff was very friendly. Castle was made with rocks from nearby Little Miami River. The story behind it was very interesting. My kids (13 & 10) really enjoyed it.
  • The museum features lovely gardens and a hand built multi-story stone castle. The castle history is featured throughout the facility, in photographs, news articles, and video. Admission was $5 for an adult. It was worth the trip and my daughter really enjoyed it.
  • Cute little out of the way castle that I had no idea was there. It's not huge or overly elaborate but it is quaint and quite peaceful right on the little Miami River.
