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 castle is one man's love for knighthood. Harry named his scout troop the Knights of the Golden Trail. The plots of land(by the Little Miami river) were donated by 2 of his scout's parents. He buil...  read more »
  • 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!
  • 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.
  • It's a great trip for the kids, the beautiful castle provokes their curiosity for the past. Unfortionately for those seriously interested in medieval history without kids, this is hardly worth the stop. Its sad to think that someone put all this work into building a medieval castle and then decided to populate it with tacky fleemarket nick-nacks, and cheap peices of replica armor. But none the less the outside of the castle is a magical setting and is certainly worth visiting, especially if you bring the kids. In Short expect 'Medieval Times's' take on history, but in a beautiful setting.
  • 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.
  • A cool castle with some interesting history behind it. Unfortunately, the grounds are not very well maintained. It's also a bit more touristy than I imagined, so don't take this place too seriously if you visit.
