Stow Historical Society Board of Trustees met Monday, April 13th at 7:00 p.m. at Stow Safety Center. Present were members John Baranek, Howard Corathers, John Daugherty, Beth Daugherty, Marcia Gilmore, and Jacinda Warman. The Heritage House Museum will be cleaned and open soon in anticipation of the third-grade school tours, which will take place in May. The Darrow House and Starr Houses are also being given a thorough spring cleaning.
The historic buildings at Heritage Reserve Park are available for private tours for family reunions, company retreats, church groups, or any groups or individuals interested in a unique event. New this year is the Stewart School, Stow’s last one-room schoolhouse, now situated near the historic houses. If interested please contact Board President John Baranek at 330-689-2852. Private tours do depend on the generous participation of volunteers to welcome visitors to each house.
Model T Ford Club enjoyed their private tour in summer 2014!
