Squires Castle was built in the 1890s by Feargus B. Squire (a founder of Standard Oil Company) for use as the gatekeeper’s house for his future country estate, which was never built. He purchased 525 acres of land but never completed the project. Squire sold the property in 1922 and the Cleveland Metroparks acquired it in 1925. Today Squire’s Castle is open to the public free-of-admission.
