Description: Richfield Heritage Preserve, formerly Girl Scout camp Julia Crowell Hilaka, was once home to pioneers, inventors, agriculturalists, and campers before becoming a beautiful community park for everyone to enjoy. Keeping with the tradition of diverse uses, the park hosts a variety of activities, from hiking, fishing, and horseback riding to visiting the beautiful historic homes and seeing inventor Jim Kirby's hydroelectric Mill wheel and patented self-clarifying lake! Hope you will join us to learn more about this hidden treasure tucked away in Richfield, Ohio.
Corey Ringle has served on FoCH's board since 2010 and as president since 2013. She became familiar with the park as a Girl Scout and first camped there in 1990. In 1997 Corey and other members of her Girl Scout troop built the permanent orienteering courses in the park. The historic buildings on the property piqued her interest in historic architecture and informed her career direction: she holds a master’s degree in architecture from Kent State University. Corey is a registered architect, currently working at William H. Childs, Jr. & Associates in Chagrin Falls.
