Welcome to Case-Barlow Farm!
Case-Barlow Farm aims to be a regional model of historic preservation and adaptive reuse. We engage the community in an authentic interactive experience, offering a perspective of events, issues, and people of the Western Reserve from the past to the present. Case-Barlow Farm will connect people with history, arts, and culture. We enhance the educational and cultural offerings of the region, and we captivate the learning mind!
