The Long-Romspert Homestead
The Homestead is the headquarters for the Oakwood Historical Society and is located at 1947 Far Hills Avenue. Situated on two acres of park-like grounds, the homestead is one of the earliest homes built in Oakwood and the longest continuously occupied by one family (1863-1985). The homestead was bequeathed to the Oakwood Historical Society in 1985 upon the death of Ethel Romspert. The parcel contains two homes, 1947 and 1945 Far Hills Avenue. The Ohio Historical Society approved the Homestead for the National Registry of Historic Places in June 1987.
The Societies property also includes a spring house, carriage house, summer kitchen, and a second house built in 1902 at 1945 Far Hills Avenue.
