Loveland Castle (pictured)

Located on the banks of the Little Miami in Loveland, Cincinnati’s Loveland Castle (“Chateau Laroche”) is a true testament to the power of imagination. This authentic, full-scale castle was built brick by brick by Cincinnati native (Sir) Harry Andrews. He began construction in 1929 and spent the next 50 years working on his masterpiece, using stones from the Little Miami River and hand-molded bricks made of cement and quart milk cartons. The castle includes gardens, several towers, a dungeon and rooms full of medieval replicas and memorabilia. Loveland Castle, 12025 Shore Drive, Loveland, OH. lovelandcastle.com
