Here it is on opening day, June 16, 2008. The exterior is complete and the interior is nearly so. All that remained was to do some landscaping!

About the Village…
The Chesterland Historical Foundation began with a donation of five acres of land at the corner of Caves and Mayfield Roads by Mrs. Stockton, daughter of Walter White, a Cleveland industrialist. The White’s had a home in Chester, now on the site of Hawken School, and she decided that some of the historical flavor of the township should be preserved so, in 1973, she donated the acreage, on which stood the 1847 Scotland School, with the stipulation that the land be used to preserve and display the history of the township.
Over the next three decades the foundation obtained and restored five major structures, in addition to several smaller ones, all retaining the historical features present when they were originally constructed.
On the site, the foundation maintains…
