Fall yard sale supports Westlake history

Dr. George Lathrop

What does Dr. George Lathrop have to do with the upcoming yard sale put on by The Westlake Historical Society?

Dr. George Lathrop was born in 1866 and passed away in 1929. Dr. Lathrop served the local residents of Dover as a physician for many years, and lived and worked from his home and office located just east of Dover Center and Center Ridge roads. Although the doctor has been gone for many years, his photo lives on!

The society is charged with preserving and sharing Westlake's rich history. This includes the acquisition of new artifacts, as well as the upkeep of existing precious items.

Dr. Lathrop’s photo, which has been in the collection for some time, is in need of archival restoration and reframing once again. The monies collected help our organization to ensure that his photo and other historical items continue to get the special care they will need.

The Fall Yard Sale, sponsored by the Westlake Historical Society, will be held on Sunday, Sept. 18. The sale will take place on the lawn of the Clague House Museum, 1371 Clague Road, between the hours of 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. This popular event features classy cast-offs, no longer needed knick knacks, and will be sure to offer a variety of items for any buyer. Hot coffee, cider, and donuts will also be available.
