Ravenwood Castle in New Plymouth, Ohio

Ravenwood Castle in New Plymouth, Ohio
Although the design of Ravenwood Castle was inspired by castles built to defend the border between England and Wales in the 12th and 13th centuries, the building in much newer, of course. Sue and Jim Maxwell have been long-time Anglophiles (lovers of English Culture) and have made many trips to Britain where they first enjoyed the concept of Bed and Breakfast many years before it was common in America. It was on these trips they also got the idea for the Castle. Ground was broken in September 1994, and the main Castle building was finished by May 1995. Although they had planned only four rooms for guests, for various reasons, a few more rooms were added along the way. The cottages in the medieval village were started in the fall of 1996 and the first three were ready for guests in the spring of 1997. Complete Story and Photos


The Golden Lamb - Oldest Hotel in Ohio and Haunted

The Golden Lamb - Oldest Hotel in Ohio and Haunted
The most famous ghost of the Golden Lamb is a little girl named Sarah. Sarah's was Isaac Stubbs' niece (he was the inn's manager). However, Sarah didn't die as a child, so some people think it's actually the ghost of a little girl named Eliza Clay (daughter of Henry Clay). Eliza died at the Golden Lamb in 1825 from a terrible fever. The ghostly activity occurs mainly in one specific room. She makes lots of noises and knocks things off walls and furniture. The other famous ghost who is believed to haunt the Golden Lamb is Charles R. Sherman, an Ohio Supreme Court Justice who died at the inn in 1829. According to Chris Woodyard in her book The Ghost Hunter's Guide to Haunted Ohio, the ghost is described as a "gaunt, gray man" who appears in the hallways.  Complete Story and Photos
