The Brumback Library in Van Wert, Ohio is a little castle with a difference – it's actually a library.
From the Brumback Library website:
“The Brumback Library, Ohio and its five branches located in Convoy, Middle Point, Ohio City, Willshire, and Wren comprise the first County Library formed in the United States. The Library clearly serves as an outstanding example of great foresight and philanthropy, a true cultural legacy”.
The library, named after John Sanford Brumback, 'is a combination of Gothic and Romanesque with a Ludowici tile roof and turreted towers'. Whilst the interior of the library is more functional than it's ornate exterior might suggest, the Brumback Library [Castle] is certainly worth seeking out if you're in the area – particularly if you're an avid castle-spotter and want another photo for your collection or Instagram account.
