City to host barn dedication at Grant-Sawyer Home

Arts in the Alley weekend celebrates the artistry and traditions of Grove City. In the spirit of both, the community and visitors are encouraged to visit the Grant-Sawyer Home, 4126 Haughn Road, and surrounding grounds Saturday, Sept. 21 for an open house and dedication of the renovated barn.

Capping off months of restorative craftsmanship on the nearly 100-year-old building, a dedication ceremony will take place in front of the barn at 1:30 p.m. Following the ceremony, guests are welcome to enter the barn and enjoy the artistry involved in the restoration.

With the Homestead’s expansive well-maintained grounds, guests are encouraged to bring a picnic, blankets or lawn chairs and enjoy an afternoon of old-fashioned, late-summer fun under the shade of the trees with the Southwest Franklin County Historical Society.

“This is a unique opportunity for our community to relive the past and celebrate the remarkable work at the homestead,” said Mayor Richard “Ike” Stage.

Parking is available on Gladman Avenue, at the Park Street Intermediate and J.C. Sommer Elementary schools.

To learn more about local history visit the Grove City Museum and Welcome Center, 3378 Park St., during Arts in the Alley, noon to 5 p.m., Saturday, Sept. 21 and 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., Sunday, Sept. 22.
