Our Community Garden Project
This stone structure was used as a smokehouse and is part of the original settlement of the Cahoon family that lived at this site.
For a short time it was even used as a jail for misdemeanors.
The Herb Garden by Cahoon house at Rosehill in Bay Village has been the longest supported garden effort by the Herb Guild since it’s beginning in 1981. Volunteer teams tend to the garden monthly, weeding and watering as needed. The Herb Garden at Stearns Homestead in Parma was also developed by the Herb Guild. The Westlake Community Garden Project is the newest garden supported by the Herb Guild. Pictured above is the Smokehouse by the historical homestead, Cahoon House in Bay Village.

The Garden is Open!
Some of the Herb Guild Garden Team is represented here: Members volunteer throughout the summer to water and weed the gardens as needed. A new culinary herb garden is being planted and designed for educational purposes.

Here are some photos of the actual herbs that are currently growing at the Herb Garden at Rosehill and the Osborne Learning Center as well as the Cahoon House Museum.
Emphasis on Education.
The Herb Gardens have been redesigned and improved. Herbs have been divided into categories and plant charts are available to borrow while browsing through the herb gardens around the historical houses.
