From The Archives Of The Lakewood Historical Society

As the story goes, in the early 1800's an English coachman ran away with his master's wife to America and settled in Rockport in the Western Reserve where he quarried his own stone and built this six-room house, so-named the Honeymoon Inn. Demolished in 1928, it was rumored to have been one of the oldest houses in Lakewood at the time, where it stood on the corner of Roycroft and Detroit Avenues. Anyone having more information about other stone houses built in Lakewood, please feel free to share that information with the Lakewood Historical Society at 216-221-7343 or
