Inscription.  Waddington Farms was the summer home of Mr. and Mrs. Earl W. Oglebay. Today the farm is one of the finest municipal parks in the country — Oglebay Park. The map above is from a plan created for Mr. Oglebay in 1909 for the proposed arrangement of grounds for Waddington Farms.

[Captions:]

Farm workers pose for a snapshot on the original porch of this building when it was a residence on the Oglebay family's estate. This photo was taken in 1915.
