For relaxation, many choose Malabar Farm State Park, created by Pulitzer Prize-winning author, Louis Bromfield. His goal was to create a working farm using the latest ideas he acquired in France. As he restored the farm, he also preserved the woodlands. Today, the property remains as it did in his time, with people enjoying the beauty, trails, wagon rides, restaurant, or possibly a picnic. The Big House, a 32-room farmhouse, built by Bromfield still remains; and in 1945 was the setting for the marriage of Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall.
The youth of our community attend Lucas Local Schools. For those who wish to further their education close to home, there are several choices which can be driven to in less than one hour. They include: Ashland University, Ohio State University – Mansfield, Kenyon College, Mount Vernon Nazarene University, and The College of Wooster.
We have a wonderful setting for you. Stop by and see us soon.
