Greetings from Barton Farm!
Greetings from Barton Farm in New Hartford, Ohio! I’m Kelsey Cambridge, the director of Barton Farm, a living history museum tucked away in Ohio’s Cuyahoga Valley. If you are looking for a fun and educational outing for your family, come and check us out! We're here to share Ohio and American history with you. Our historical interpreters make nineteenth century Western Reserve history come alive. They dress in period costume and share the customs and news just as if they were living in 1863. We also have gifted craftsmen and craftswomen who make goods using only mid-nineteenth century technology. They create everything from hand-dipped candles to hand-thrown bricks. You will also enjoy touring our history building which include the Barton Home, a church, a schoolhouse and much more, and don't forget our beautiful maple grove and pristine gardens.
This summer is the very best time to visit because Barton Farm will be hosting our first ever Civil War reenactment and the first annual Blue and Gray Ball. Civil War Reenactors from all over the state and region will come to our museum to take part in the reenactment battles and in the dancing. Not to mention Abraham Lincoln and Walt Whitman, who served as a nurse during the War Between the States, will also be in attendance. You won’t want to miss it. The monumental event is made possible by our kind benefactress Cynthia Cherry. Without Cynthia’s generosity we would not be able to pull off such a major undertaking.
I just hope nothing goes wrong… What could possibly go wrong?
