Statement of Purpose:

Two 19th century homes owned by brothers. Limestone exteriors, wooden interiors, elaborate furnishings.

The Piatt Castles is a private, family owned museum that offers guided tours and programs at two historical mansions, Mac-A-Check and Mac-O-Chee. These 19th century homes of Brigadier General and farmer, Abram Sanders Piatt, and his brother, famed journalist and poet, Colonel Donn Piatt, have interpreted Ohio history and inspired visitors since they opened in the 191Os. Constructed of limestone and decorated with elaborate woodwork and frescoes, the castles contain collections of Native American tools, books, military artifacts and family furnishings from two centuries. The museum works in partnership with a non-profit organization to provide programs, exhibits, and publications about the central Ohio region.

Highlights & Collections:

Abram Sanders Piatt served in the Mexican War and the Civil War.  An accomplished poet, politician, and farmer, he worked his beloved estate his whole life.

Everything needed to build the Chateau was made on site except for the glass and slate for the roof. As Mac-O-Chee Castle, this castle was decorated and frescoed by the French artist Oliver Frey. Inside will be found family antiques, Native American artifacts, war relics and more.
