“Side trip to castles”
Review of Piatt Castles

Piatt Castles
Attraction details
Reviewed July 14, 2013

We had gone to Ohio Caverns and decided to do the Piatt Castles which are in the same area. Both castles were at one time, I'm sure, very stately and beautiful homes. However, because family funds have run out, they are in dire need of renovation and remodeling. It's sad to see that these homes are just falling down. Beautiful woodworking and furniture throughout.

Beautiful historic homes/museums and grounds. Wonderful view into the past; lots of period furnishings. Both homes are in the process of restoration, but most portions open to public view. Well worth the trip, will definitely visit again!

I thought there could have been more interaction between staff and visitors. Seemed more like a self guided tour.

Food was fine and love seeing the old beautiful sights. It's a good place to take the family for an outing.

The castles are an example of beautiful architecture and although they have declined through the years, they are still lovely. I wish there were recording in each room to tell you about the construction features, which were not mentioned. (like the trough down the sides of the stairs to allow the sweeping out of the stair corners. and the skylight created by funneling sunlight through 2 stratigically placed windows. The alcove in the one room that was an enclosed bed reserved for special quests. They are lovely and well worth seeing
