This is Squire’s Castle in Willoughby Hills near Cleveland, Ohio. Feargus B. Squire began building it in the 1890s but never finished it when his wife suddenly died at a young age. Many believe she still haunts the castle to this day, having been spotted in the upstairs window by many visitors. Squire’s Castle is still abandoned today and owned by the Cleveland MetroParks.

Marblehead Lighthouse in Marblehead, Ohio, is the oldest lighthouse in continuous operation on the United States side of the Great Lakes. It has guided sailors safely along the rocky shores of Marblehead Peninsula since 1822, and is an active aid to navigation.
Marblehead Lighthouse is also one of Lake Erie’s best known and most-photographed landmarks!
The grounds surrounding the lighthouse provide great areas for picnicking and views of Lake Erie, Sandusky Bay, Kelleys Island and South Bass Island.

For 27 years, Clifton Mill has celebrated the Christmas season in a very special way. Their light display, which was featured in Midwest Living and Ohio Magazine, is one of the country’s finest with over 3.5 million lights illuminating the mill, the gorge, the riverbanks, trees, and bridges. There is even a 100 foot “waterfall” of twinkling lights. The flip of one switch turns all the lights on at once transforming night into a fantastical winter wonderland which includes a Miniature Village, a Santa Claus Museum, a Toy Collection and a spectacular synchronized lights and music show that features the old Covered Bridge.
