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.

  • The loveland castle is a great place! It's full of lots of history. It's a fun place for the whole family. Boys and girls can play pretend in the great castle. Fairies and princess being saved by the dragons and knights! Even the parents can get in on this action! Enjoy the stories this castle tells! Play the puzzles, explore the dungeons, plant in the magical gardens, and even see the royal rooms. There's so much to see. Exploring the whole place can take anywhere from1-3 hours!
  • AMAZING!!!!!! I felt transported back in time; the architecture itself is so surreal, and the garden has so many lovely little nooks. A kindly employee, dressed up in medieval garb, even gave the kids bubbles to play with outside of the castle. There is a dungeon, and stones from all over the world (and outside of it) built into the walls. This is one of my new favorite places in Ohio.
  • Meh? I mean I love me a good castle and an adventure, but this was only sorta worth the drive from Cinci. The castle itself is fairly cool, but the price ($20) and the renfaire-esqe booths in front are kinda lame.
  • Nice place to learn about Sir Harry and his way of living based on Knights principles based on 10 commandments.
  • This is not an ancient historic landmark, this is one man's vision to build something unique. And that he did! If you're looking for medieval relics, you're not going to find it. But, what you will find is a very interesting story about how this castle was built and all the uniqueness within. It's well worth the visit because you will not see anything else like it in the world!
