The Old Stone House Museum in Lakewood:  This 1838 “old stone house” was originally the residence of a Scottish immigrant and later served as a post office, shoe repair shop, grocery store, doctor’s office, and barbershop. Now, as a museum, it looks at the city’s pioneer past with displays of furniture, household items, clothing, tools, books, toys, dolls, and a spinning wheel. The home has a sick room with old-fashioned equipment to care for the ill. Also displayed are roped beds, cooking fireplace, four-harness loom, furnished parlor, handmade linens and more. The Old Stone House has a cousin linked to it – Nicholson House. This 1835 home is an example of early Western Reserve architecture. Both homes are listed in the National Register of Historic Places.
