Chateau Laroche is another castle built in Ohio in the early 1920s. It was the idea of Harry Andrews, a Boy Scout troop leader. The primary goal of the construction was to commemorate the principles of Knighthood and celebrate its traditions as well.

The Chateau Laroche, also known as the Loveland Castle, stands on a plot of land that the group has acquired through a subscription of The Cincinnati Enquirer. The materials used to build the castle are from the nearby Little Miami River, which were carried by the bucket by Andrews himself. Other stones were from his trips or from friends who send them over.

When Andrews died in 1981, he gave the property to the Boy Scout Knight of the Golden Trail troop. This organization then improved the whole Chateau Laroche that people know today.
