Bartholomew House Restoration Project

Help us restore the Bartholomew House!
Richfield’s Oldest Home, the Riley Lucas Bartholomew House, is in need of repairs to keep it standing and available to tours. The Richfield Historical Society has gathered Legacy Grant Funds to create a structure report which you can see pieces below. The next step is to actually do the work needed. Please consider becoming a Historical society sponsor or a Bartholomew House Friend donor. If you are would like more information please contact us or visit our History Center.

*Small group tours are still available at this time. We are no longer permitting tours of the second floor.
