Chateau Laroche, the Loveland Castle
  1. It has a castle  
    A castle! In Ohio! It’s true… the Loveland Castle, properly known as Chateau Laroche, was built by medieval enthusiast Harry D. Andrews. Harry got the land by subscribing to the Cincinnati Enquirer for a year and spent a lifetime building the knightly abode of his dreams with his bare hands.

  1. It’s Home to a Mystical Creature  
    Whether or not this is a good or bad thing depends on what you’re into, but we think it’s pretty neat that Loveland has its very own cryptid—the Loveland Frogman. First sighted in the 1950s, he’s said to stand roughly 4 feet tall and was once seen carrying a wand that shoots sparks—very cool, Frogman. Very cool. He’s cemented his place in local lore and is now the town’s official mascot.
