My wife and I visited Springhill in Massillon ( her first) and enjoyed it completely. The amazing thing is to have an historic home like this in our city. It is truly a hidden gem.

Home of Thomas and Charity Rotch, the Quaker founders of Kendall. The Rotches brought merino sheep to Ohio from New England. The house is listed on the National Historic Register for being a stop on the Underground Railroad. Guided tours of the house and grounds.

It wasn't easy to find this place. But when I arrived the volonteers were so welcoming. Gave a lot of information about the time before the civil war.

This beautiful home was the first one in the Sippo Valley - built long before there were any towns in the surrounding area. It has a special place for hiding travellers on the Underground Railroad. It is well worth your time to take a tour,...More

Visited during their Apple Butter Festival. Lots of fun, good parking, good food. Also toured the house and learned more about the Underground as it was one of the stopping points for it! Very interesting, to say the least.
