The Grapevine by S. Serdinak

Last year Oviatt House volunteers removed the 1950’s siding that had covered the original siding on the 1836 house and found that the original was in very good condition. They scraped and painted that siding, and custom fit sashes for all of the window openings before putting in the glass.  

The Oviatt House was featured on the back cover of Shuttercraft’s 2024 calendar

Their research showed there were two styles of shutters from the early 1800s and they chose one from Shuttercraft, who custom-made the shutters for the new windows. The company applauded the work of the Oviatt volunteers, under the guidance of Ken Bowman, by showcasing the house on the back cover of its 2024 calendar.

Keith Dudo is a Richfield native who dealt with lifelong challenges by drawing pictures. In the last few years, he created a cute story around the beautiful photos. The Cuyahoga Valley Career Center produced a storybook and coloring book for him. The paperback book “Mokie: The Misplaced Mouse” is now for sale on Amazon at the URL

The children’s book “Mokie: The Misplaced
Mouse” can now be purchased through Amazon.

The people who were responsible for the smash and grab thefts from vehicles in Richfield Heritage Preserve over several months have been apprehended in Florida. Another couple of thieves were caught in Cuyahoga County who were accused of stealing mail in Richfield. Take down the “all welcome” sign.
