Gothic Castles probably aren’t the first thing that pops to mind when you think of Ohio, but we do have them.  Piatt Castles in West Liberty are two examples.
 

Built in the 1860’s by the son’s of Benjamin Piatt, the two brothers created their lavish castle’s just three quarters of a mile from each other in the Logan County Countryside.  Donn named his residence Mac-O-Chee, and Abram called his Mac-A-Cheek.The Piatt families lived in the homes until 1985, and they still own and manage the castles as museums and rental facilities.

The Mac-A-Cheek foundation is presenting a Castle Camp preview Fair on Memorial Day from noon to 4 pm. Fair goers will be able to learn about the five upcoming Summer Camps for children in grades 4-6 held at the Castles and enjoy free activities on the lawn.

List your event on the WYSO community calendar and we might spotlight it on the air!
