  • The phrase "To Dwell with Fellow Clay" is the fourth line of verse inscribed on the cemetery marker of Smith Townsend in the East Cleveland Township Cemetery. Mr. Townsend died in 1833 and the phrase is taken from a hymn by Isaac Watt, who also wrote the Christmas carol "Joy to the World."

  • In 1806 14-year-old Caleb Eddy Jr. immigrated as a pioneer with his parents to what later became known as East Cleveland Township. He purchased land in Dover Township in 1827 and built this house c. 1865 which was moved to 29506 Osborn Road in 1910.
