Squire's Castle is located in the North Chagrin Reservation of the Cleveland Metroparks in Willoughby Hills, Ohio (visible from River Road). It was built in the 1890s by Feargus B. Squire for use as the gatekeeper's house for his future country estate, which was never built. Squire, a founder of Standard Oil Company, bought the surrounding 525 acres of land but never completed the project. Squire sold the property in 1922 and the Cleveland Metroparks acquired it in 1925. Squire's Castle has acquired a sense of mystery. It is reportedly haunted by Squire's wife, Rebecca. An urban legend says she tripped and broke her neck there, but in reality, she died in Wickliffe, Ohio, in 1929.

Each fall they host an herb fair the Saturday following Labor Day, featuring over 70 artisans set up among the gardens. Admission is $2 per car, which is donated to the local boy scout troup. This year didn't disappoint with artisans displaying items including jewelry, stoneware, ironwork and much much more! After of morning of shopping and browsing the gardens, we enjoyed lunch provided by the local church.
Glorious mums in a rainbow of colors filled their greenhouses!
This year I had the pleasure of meeting Cindy of Simple Elements Design. Cindy is a fellow Cleveland Handmade team member and her display was natural, earthy and a perfect backdrop for her beautiful jewelry.
What a beautiful way to spend the day!
