Franklin Castle (also known as the Tiedemann House) is a Victorian stone house, built in the American Queen Anne style, in Cleveland's Ohio City neighborhood. The building has four stories and more than 20 rooms and 80 windows. In the late 19th century, when it was built, Franklin Boulevard was one of the most prestigious residential avenues in Cleveland.

Franklin Castle was purchased in 2011 by European tapestry artist Chiara Dona dalle Rose. Local news sources have reported that the buyer intends to convert the building into three family homes and dwelling in two of the spaces.

It is purported to be the most haunted house in Ohio. In March 2017, the reality TV series Paranormal Lockdown featured the Franklin Castle in its season 1 Episode 3.
