Piatt Castles Tours
The Piatt Castles is a private, family owned museum that offers 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 1912.
Constructed of local 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.
Other words to consider from the mission statement: The corporation is committed to preserving material culture, documents, stories and traditions associated with all generations of the Piatt family in America. Its mission is to interpret the life stories of members of the Piatt family and their associates through engaging and effective programs that enable visitors:
• to explore the relationship between people and the land in central Ohio
• to investigate the inter-connectedness of history, literature, math, science, nature, architecture and the visual and performing arts
• to discover the humanity of history and to realize that history is the story of many individuals making choices
• to appreciate their own family histories.
From the vision statement: We value what has come before as it helps us understand and define who we are today. Our programs share that understanding with others in order to spark interest in creating the future.
