CLEVELAND – The Cleveland Historical Society continues its 2013 lecture series with a presentation by Gary Comins on Thursday, August 8. The discussion begins at 7 p.m. in the St. James Church on North Street Road in Cleveland and admission is free.

“Comins will discuss the rich history of the landmark ‘Stone Barn,’ including his research into the former property owners, its usage and significance to the local area,” said Cleveland Historical Society President Kathy Darrow.

The ‘Stone Barn’ was constructed as a working dairy farm although it has the appearance of a castle. The vast structure was built between 1896 and 1906 based on the designs of Charles W. Knight.  For more information, contact the Cleveland Historical Society at 315-675-8688.
