Who Remembers Siedel's Fun Farm?
If you lived in Strongsville in the '60s or '70s, you were probably there
If you grew up in Strongville in the 1960s or '70s, there's no doubt you remember Siedel's Fun Farm.
If you're a newcomer to town, you should know that the farm is an icon of Strongsville's rural history.
Once a working farm, it gradually became a place to gather for hayrides and bonfires, to ride on a tire swing or make your way through a hay maze.
"For my family, it was a fall tradition," recalled Ward 3 Councilman Jim Carbone. "We'd go every year for the hayrides."
Dan Barcy, a 1972 graduate of Strongsville High School who worked at the farm while growing up, started a Facebook page dedicated to preserving and sharing memories of the farm.
The Siedels' land was located off Westwood Drive, west of Prospect Road.
"It was sad when that farm was sold," Carbone said.
