We had our daughters Bridal Shower here and it was beautiful. The staff was very nice and helped in everyway they could. The only draw back was no air conditioning. They had plenty of fans and with the windows open we had a nice breeze!!!

My wife and I visited Springhill in Massillon ( her first) and enjoyed it completely. The amazing thing is to have an historic home like this in our city. It is truly a hidden gem.

Home of Thomas and Charity Rotch, the Quaker founders of Kendall. The Rotches brought merino sheep to Ohio from New England. The house is listed on the National Historic Register for being a stop on the Underground Railroad. Guided tours of the house and grounds.

It wasn't easy to find this place. But when I arrived the volonteers were so welcoming. Gave a lot of information about the time before the civil war.

The home is a well preserved example of an upper class home and farm from the 1800s. I took my granddaughter because she has an interest in the underground railroad and they were one of the "stations". They have opened new sections of the home...More

This beautiful home was the first one in the Sippo Valley - built long before there were any towns in the surrounding area. It has a special place for hiding travellers on the Underground Railroad. It is well worth your time to take a tour,...More

I haven't been to Spring Hill Home in a while, but the times that I did visit there was very entertaining and I learned a lot about slavery and the underground railroad. The location is well kept up and the grounds are well maintained. This...More

Visited during their Apple Butter Festival. Lots of fun, good parking, good food. Also toured the house and learned more about the Underground as it was one of the stopping points for it! Very interesting, to say the least.
