Harry Eastwood’s legacy continues in the Eastwood Preserve. The Eastwood Preserve is a 28 acre parcel of land located in the heart of Richfield. It was the property of the Harry Eastwood Family. Upon Harry’s death the family wanted to see the land preserved forever.
Acquiring the Land
The Eastwood Preserve was acquired through a Clean-Ohio Grant in 2004. The Summit-Medina Land Conservatory is the administrator of the property. Development of the Preserve started with the house property and the gardens.
