The Fletcher Coffman Homestead in Dublin, typifies American farm life of the 1800's. The Civil War era brick house and adjoining farm buildings are a testimonial to the hard working people who constituted the second generation of Ohio pioneer families.
Built between the years 1862 and 1867, this simple two-story house has been restored to interpret the lifestyle and tastes of a middle class farm family of that era. It is furnished with original Coffman family furniture and pieces which belonged to other Dublin families from that time. The 19th century barn contains agricultural tools and equipment of the period. An outhouse from a home in the historic district now has a new home near the corn crib.
(Located on the south side of Dublin City Hall, 5200 Emerald Parkway. Parking available behind City Hall.)
