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.

Faamed Sweeney Punch Bowl, made in 1844, is on exhibit in Oglebay Institute's Glass Museum on the lower level of Oglebay Park's Carriage House Glass.

Carriage barn on the grounds of Waddington Farms. Built in 1856, this barn was used as the inspiration for the design of Oglebay Park's Carriage House Glass.
