Independence Historical Society


The Bramley Home

Constructed in 1856, the Bramley Home has been the focal point of the Historical Society’s restoration efforts since it was bequeathed to the Historical Society in 1996, upon the death of Betsey Bramley. A complete renovation is currently underway, and those passing by have recently begun to see the signs of the exterior portion of renovation. Efforts will pick up again in the spring, and volunteers are always welcome.

The ultimate goal of the renovation is to house a fully restored meeting room for small groups in the community. The remainder of the home will be a dedicated museum. The Historical Society has received grants from the Reinberger Foundation and also from the State of Ohio. Visit the photos page to view more on the Bramley Home.
