The story of Squire's Castle.
Squire’s Castle can be
found in Willoughby Hills, which is part of the Cleveland, Ohio
Metroparks. The exact address is North Chagrin Reservation. The
castle itself was never built only the gate house, which was three
stories with a basement. The 1890 gate house was created with stone,
Tiffany glass, carved moldings, and beautiful European furniture.
The gate house was at the time built on the 525 acre estate of
Feargus B. Squire.
Mr. Squire along with his wife lived in
the gate house with plans to build an exquisite mansion. Mrs. Squire
lost her mind while living at the gate house. After this, Mr. Squire
lost all interest in building his mansion. He sold the property in
1922. The gate house was in ruins by the time the city of Cleveland
purchased the property. The city has preserved what could be saved
in which the first floor is used for various events.
The area around the gate house has been
rumored for all kinds of scary happenings from gang hang outs to
suicides. However, several people have spoken of seeing a woman
staring out the second story window, seeing a red glow from a
lantern in various windows, and the sounds of a woman screaming in
fear in the late night hours.
