Jonathan Herrick House
Hale Farm & Village

Oak Hill Road
Bath Township, Ohio

History

This house was originally built by Jonathan E. Herrick in Twinsburg in 1845. Herrick was was a successful farmer and father to five children with his wife Phila Clark, and he served as a township trustee. Phila died in 1889. Upon Jonathan's death in 1898, the house was willed to a former employee, Anna Simmonds, who took possession in 1916. The house was slated for demolition in 1981, but offered to Western Reserve Historical Society provided they paid the expense of moving the massive stone home. It was relocated to Hale Farm and reconstructed stone by stone.

Hauntings

Staff have reported objects being moved while the house is closed and other unexplained activity. There have been a few sightings of a male apparition caught for fleeting moments inside the house as well.
