Squire's castle has a really interesting history behind it. It was being built to be a gatekeeper's home behind Feargus B Squire's home which was never even began. Squire was one of the founders of Standard Oil Company. This project was never completed and was sold to the Cleveland Metroparks in 1925. The castle is actual just a shell, when you walk through you can see that there was supposed to be a second floor but it was never put in, and my favorite room is the round one on the right side of the picture. There is a huge fireplace inside.
Squire's castle is also supposed to be haunted by Squire's wife Rebecca, who it is said tripped and broke her neck in the castle. This has been proven wrong because I found while I was reading about this that she passed away in another city, after the property had been sold. I remember in high school my friends and I would sometimes sneak out here to see if we could find Rebecca, and we would quickly be caught by park rangers and sent home! Even though it has this haunted history, it's a place where a lot of people come to walk the trails behind it, and take pictures (I took my prom pictures here) and have barbeques and parties.
Do you have any metroparks or haunted places near where you live?
