The Case-Barlow Second Sunday Open House on July 9 from 1 to 4 p.m. will feature information about the historic farmhouse and barn. The Case Family came from Granby, Connecticut in 1814 and moved into a log cabin already on the property. The family built a kiln and made brick that was sold around the area and used for their home at 1931 Barlow Road. The brick structure was first listed on the tax roles in 1831, the back wooden addition was soon added.
Case-Barlow Farm is recognized by the Hudson Heritage Association with the distinctive black and white house markers seen on historic buildings located throughout Hudson.
The Aug. 13 Open House will showcase the CBF gardens and the Western Reserve Community Band will present a lawn concert of patriotic music from 2 to 3. Bring your own blanket or lawn chair.
Open houses are free but donations to restore and preserve the property are appreciated. Refreshments will be sold.
