L is for Loveland Castle in Ohio, USA

In my post for letter "G", I mentioned that I am traveling to Sweden for training. Another country where I am supposed to travel to this year to train for my new job is the USA. I need to see our two main offices in Washington and Ohio.

I got Loveland when researching for nice places to see in Ohio. Loveland is named after a storeowner and postmaster, James Loveland. I think it wouldn't be hard to guess why I want to visit. My main hobby is about sending and receiving postcards and letters from the mail.

While browsing through my postcards collection, I was delighted to see that I have something from Loveland, OH. This is Loveland Castle, the headquarters of the Boy Scouts Troop named Knights of the Golden Trail. The castle is also called Chateau Laroche, which means "Rock Castle" in French.

  1. Wow - I grew up in Ohio, but I've never heard about this place. Looks intriguing.

  2. What a handsome castle and you had a postcard of it. I hope you get to see it in person when you visit the USA. Would you like to trade postcards with me? Send me an email with your address to the kilns at excite dot com I am in California.

    1. Hi Terra! I sent to you an email. I hope I typed the correct e-mail address :)

  3. I had no idea there was a castle in Ohio! That would definitely be worth a visit. Can't wait to see more of your postcards, Maria!

  4. Hi Maria, What a nice find ... Loveland Castle ... We don't have many castles here in the USA ... wish we had more. Wow, you are almost half way through the alphabet ... nice work! :-)

  5. That is a neat looking castle.

  6. It is a wonderful building to see, and it is in Ohio. Wow.

  7. Fabulous building! And I'm sure you'll enjoy Sweden. I live just outside Stockholm.

  8. Hi - I don't often stay in hotels, but here is a link to what people on Trip Advisor think are good budget hotels in Stockholm. http://www.tripadvisor.com/HotelsList-Stockholm-Cheap-Hotels-zfp10483.html

    I'd also recommend staying on a ship while in town - it's much cheaper. The Af Chapman is run by the Youth Hostel Association. It has a great location in the centre of town.

    You should go to Skansken - the oldest outdoor museum in the world. And to the Vasa Museum and the Abba Museum.

  9. Hi Maria .. it looks a solid building ... and it's so lucky you're getting a chance to travel and see new countries and meet new people .. enjoy the experiences - cheers Hilary
