Visit Oak Hill Cottage
   in Mansfield, Ohio


Our summer field trip will be a docent led tour of Oak Hill Cottage in Mansfield. Built in 1849 and restored in 1870 era this historic home is operated by the Richland County Historical Society. The cottage features original furniture, artifacts and gardens. Louis Bromfield played at Oak Hill as a child. His memories of the cottage were the basis for “Shanes Castle” in his 1929 novel The Green Bay Tree.

You will find this tour both fun and factual. There is a small admission fee.

Following the tour, we will lunch at Bart’s Bistro in downtown Mansfield.

The carpool will leave the Myers Inn at 9:30 a.m. Please call Janet, 740-965-2369, for tour and lunch reservations AND whether you plan to carpool or meet us in Mansfield.
