Oak Hill Cottage

The Oak Hill Cottage and Museum in Mansfield is a Gothic Revival brick house built in 1847.  This home was owned and occupied by the family of Dr. J.A. Jones for 101 years.  It is now open to the  public as an example of late 19th century lifestyle preserved.

This is my first visit to your blog. It's great! And Dayton is a great place; my sister used to go to Antioch College.

This would be an excellent post for Ruby Tuesday at Hey Harriet's blog, you know. Beautiful photo.

Thanks so much for visiting mine with the curvy building. Much appreciated.

What a fantastic looking house! I just love the gingerbread trim. I'm not sure what part of Ohio you are in but the southern part is full of those quilt barns I showed. You can find maps on-line by googling Ohio quilt barns or different counties. Feel free to email me if you want more information.

I wonder how the Mansfield looks like at 1847, must still be a very rural area. He must had done very well to build such a nice house at that time.
