Do you have an empty wall in your house crying out for a picture or painting? The Strongsville Historical Village was born when Howard and Velda Chapman bequeathed their home and surrounding lands to the Historical Society. Velda Chapman was a prolific artist and painted a series of 75 watercolors of historic buildings throughout the Strongsville region. Numbered editions of four of those watercolors are available for sale in the store.
All proceeds from store sales go to help keep the beautiful Historic Village maintained.
