Society launches centennial barn project

"See Rock City" and "Mail Pouch" are just a few of the signs that come to my mind when I remember seeing barns as a child. Barns conjure up strong images for people – hard work, pride, a sense of home.

But the big barns that identify small farms in the United States are quickly diminishing. Those barns that represent a part of our past and our heritage are also disappearing. The Westlake Historical Society would like your help in locating the remaining 100-year-old or Centennial barns located in Westlake. 

If you or someone you know is the owner of one of these historical barns or a historical out-building, please let us know. The Historical Society has begun an identification and cataloging of the barns here in Westlake. As many already know, the Clague Playhouse was originally the Clague family barn.

To inform us about a barn you know of, please contact the Historical Society at 440-721-1201, or send us an e-mail at
