A Trip to a Castle

Chateau LaRoche
Loveland, Ohio
Fun times with writing friends


Entering the castle



hubby and baby getting ready to ascend the stairs from the dungeon


Stylish knights?

The Long Table for hungry men :)




Headed to the gardens
Would love to build something like this to my gardens!


Outside in the gardens


A nice resting spot




 
Gorgeous outdoor lights

 
And one of my favorites!


Chateau Laroche was built as an expression and reminder of the simple strength and rugged grandeur of the mighty men who lived when Knighthood was in flower.
It was their knightly zeal for honor, valor and manly purity that lifted mankind out of the moral midnight of the dark ages and started it towards the gray dawn of human hope.
Present human decadence proves a need for similar action.

Already the ancient organization of Knights have been re-activated to save society.
Any man of high ideas who wishes to help save civilization is invited to become a member of the Knights of the Golden Trail, whose only vows are the Ten Commandments.

Chateau Laroche is the World headquarters of this organization, started in 1927.
