Sleepy Hollow Lake Park was the place almost every child who grew up in Brunswick learned to swim. The lake with a giant slide, an Olympic-sized pool, a clubhouse and restaurant were all part of the iconic lake that provides plenty of nostalgia when people talk about it. 

The Brunswick Area Historical Society will host a program by Greg and Lin Crane, whose family owned the property. It will be held at 6 p.m. March 28 in the fellowship hall at Brunswick United Methodist Church, 1395 Pearl Road, Brunswick. Come to share your own memories -- maybe you took Red Cross Swim classes there, too. The fellowship hall is handicapped accessible via an elevator. For more information, email or call 330-441-0292 and leave a message.

Keep the Doors to the Past OPEN!

Edwards Middle School is scheduled for demolition in 2020

Our plan is to save the front entrances of the Edwards building and move them to Heritage Farm. We will incorporate them into a new building where we will recreate an old classroom and house historic school documents.
