The cultural and environmental history of the Cuyahoga Valley National
Park, told through one of its most historic properties – the Brown-Bender Farm – will be the topic of Hudson Heritage Association’s February meeting.
HHA will welcome National Park Service Outdoor Recreation Planner Bill Hunter to Barlow Community Center on Thursday, February 8, at 7:30 p.m.
The meeting is free and open to the public.
Hunter will share an overview of the history, geography and ecology of Cuyahoga Valley
National Park. He will focus on the infamous Brown-Bender Farm, located on Akron-Peninsula
Road just south of Ira Road.
The Greek Revival farmhouse, constructed in the 1840s, is nestled atop a winding driveway
and overlooks the valley. It sits on what used to be a 300-acre property. Its most famous
resident was Jim Brown, a notorious counterfeiter who brazenly printed millions of dollars of
phony currency on his property.
