Frog People

Back in olden days, the Shawnee reportedly saw "demons" in the Little Miami River, near what is now Loveland, Ohio. Modern sightings date to the 1950s.

As many as four Frog People have been seen at the same time, and they're always spotted next to the river. They're usually three to four feet tall, roughly 75 pounds, with hairless, leathery heads and wide mouths with no lips. In short, they're frog-faced. And they walk on their hind legs. Sightings of Frog People usually happen late at night, and the creatures prefer to bound away rather than attack. But that's the story of the people who have lived to tell about it.

Loveland doesn't officially acknowledge the Frog People. But one man, Harry Andrews, built a castle next to the river. His reasons are obscure, but it makes sense if a person wanted to feel safe from large, bipedal amphibious demons.

(In a case of crypto-synchronicity, the city of Loveland, Colorado, has an odd bronze statue of a large, human-like frog.)

Chateau Larouche, a.k.a. Loveland Castle, stands on the Little Miami River, possibly either as a front line of defense or as a last redoubt from The Frog People.
