Book Cover: For the Love of a Castle by Linda Mueller and Kathleen Irene Paterka


Turn a page back in time with the ultimate biography of Castle Farms.

This historical book chronicles the rich history of this French Renaissance castle listed on both the National and State of Michigan Historic Registries. Built in 1918 by Albert Loeb, an executive with Sears Roebuck Company, Castle Farms began as a working model dairy farm to showcase farm equipment available in the Sears catalog. Today, the cattle are long gone and The Castle is open to the public for historic tours. This in-depth work carries readers along on the journey from the past into the present, recounting each of the four owners and their unique visions for The Castle. Magnificent color photographs plus rare black and white archival images.
