Lincoln, Gettysburg and Lorain County


Join us at the Burrell Homestead, 2792 East River Rd in Sheffield, for an afternoon of fun and history. Every August the founding families of Sheffield gathered for a family reunion, a tradition stretching back to the 19th century. We honor that tradition with the Burrell Picnic on Saturday from 12 – 3 pm. Bring your own picnic lunch to enjoy with your family as we open the Burrell homestead to tours and have games and activities for the whole family. At 1 pm, we present Mel Maurer of the Cleveland Civil War Roundtable and his presentation of ‘Lincoln and Gettysburg’, a timely topic as we commemorate the 150th anniversary of the battle and later address in Gettysburg. Parking is on site, please call 458-5121 or 949-5200 for more information.
