The John Brown Heritage Association which owns and maintains the old, one-half acre, John Brown tannery site on the south side of New Richmond ---- on the John Brown Road about 800 feet from the State Road, Route #77, ---- is open for public visitation. There are two large interpretive displays located there and off-street parking is available.
The Association has a spring meeting on Thursday, May 11th, at 7:00 p.m. in the Community Room in the basement of the Cribbs Home, Wesbury in Meadville, at which time a topic of historical interest on mid-19th century American life is presented.
The small museum owned by Gary and Donna Coburn on the old John Brown farm across the road from the tannery site is currently closed. However, site improvements are scheduled for the Coburn’s property this spring and summer, and the public can walk to the old Brown family cemetery at the top of the hill behind the Coburn’s residence.
NOTE: The lower driveway entrance to the Rec area (nearest Route 77), is no longer available.

Listed as reasons for removal of all bins are:
The dumping all types of garbage and rubbish,
some of which contaminated the recyclable materials in the bins,
decreased funding from all government sources,
and a lower resale value for the price of the recyclables.
To continue recycling,
contact your trash hauler for further information.
North Richmond Road pipe replacement project has been completed. This was a co-operative project between Richmond Township and the Crawford County Conservation District which provided a grant to assist in the funding.
