Please join the Green Historical Society for guided tours of the restored Lichtenwalter Schoolhouse at Boettler Park & a walking tour of the Levi J Hartong/Southgate Farm inside Southgate Park.

Begin your tour at the schoolhouse and learn about school and farm life in a rural Ohio farm community as you tour our restored 1880’s classroom upstairs. Learn about the history of the City of Green & Green Township as you visit the Green Historical Society local history museum and archives in the schoolhouse basement.

Once you have completed your tour of the schoolhouse, pick up a walking guide and follow the park trails from Boettler Park to Southgate Park to walk and learn about our National Register designation, the Levi J Hartong Farm. The historic Levi J Hartong Farm has been leased by the City of Green to Rachel Bellis and Justin Turner and is now a working farm once again known as Southgate Farm. Walk the park trails to view their beautiful market gardens and animals. Enter the circa 1883 barn and visit the farm shop that sells produce from Southgate Farm and several other local farms.
