STEARNS HOMESTEAD HAPPENINGS
PARMA AREA HISTORICAL SOCIETY
Stearns Homestead, Parma's 48-acre historic farm is owned by the City of Parma and operated by the Parma Area Historical Society. The farm is located at 6975 Ridge Road (State
Route 3) just south of Parmatown Mall.
Two houses, the Stearns House (1855) and the Gibbs House (1920) serve as museums with furnishings and displays appropriate to the era. A Yankee-style barn and
outbuildings are on the site. The Country Store, meeting cabin, gardens, farm animals and their shelters offer a memorable visit to Parma's past. When purchased by the city with matching federal funds, Gibbs farm
(as it was known then) was the last remaining working farm in Parma. The farm with buildings and houses was leased to the Parma Area Historical Society in 1981.
Parma Area Historical Society depends on
membership dues, donations and volunteers to help in the effort to preserve the history of Parma. The public is invited to attend meetings, participate in community events, and to enjoy Parma's Historic Farm.
Meetings are scheduled for the third Tuesday of April, June, August, and October--7:00 p.m. at Stearns Homestead Cabin.
