Step back in time at Rose Hill Museum
Rose Hill Museum and the Reuben Osborn Learning Center will reopen to the public on Sunday, July 11, after extensive renovations. The Cahoon log cabin replica will also be open.
The Bay Village Historical Society will be holding a special afternoon fundraiser, “Back in Time: A Celebration at Rose Hill Museum,” on Sunday, July 25, from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.
“We have been counting the days until Rose Hill, the Osborn Learning Center and the Cahoon cabin can be open again to the public. People have been knocking at the door to view our treasures and hear about the rich history our community enjoys and we are anxious to finally invite them in. To celebrate our reopening, we are kicking the season off to take you ‘Back in Time’ with a special event,” said society president Cathy Flament.
“Plans are underway for a leisurely afternoon on the grounds to enjoy a light refreshment and tour of the museum to view the improvements and additions that have been made over the last two years. The cabin has been closed to the public for a few years and will finally be open. Osborn Learning Center features new displays and a special addition to our furniture collection. We encourage you to join in the festivities and bring friends, neighbors and family to help support the historical society. Tours will be staggered,” Flament said.
The event will include linen-covered tables with flower centerpieces on the lawn in front of the museum. Special cookies and a choice of liquid refreshments will be served. The cost is $10. A reservation form can be downloaded from the society’s website: bayhistorical.com. Checks may be made payable to “BVHS” and mailed to Colleen Harding, 30508 Salem Dr., Bay Village, OH 44140. You may also pay via PayPal on the society’s website.
