Mary Emery became a widow of means in 1906. She used her vision and financing to employ John Nolan, a town planner, to create the village of Mariemont. Charles Livingood, Mary’s right hand advisor and manager was the driving force in the many creations and accomplishments in the new village. Hubert Reeves was hired to design and build Resthaven Barn.
The Barn was constructed in 1924 to serve the farm land and livestock of the growing community. During the 1930's, the Lindner Quality Milk Co. leased the dairy. The Cottage was the creamery, where milk from farmers in the Goshen and Milford areas was processed. The Lindner family eventually relocated to Norwood and founded United Dairy Farmers (UDF). In time, the Barn was used to house maintenance vehicles and the tax office for the Village of Mariemont.
Today the Woman’s Art Club Foundation is happy to restore this historic property and under its new name, "The Barn, Woman's Art Club Cultural Center", it is being used as a community art center and the new home of the Woman’s Art Club of Cincinnati.
The mission of the Woman's Art Club of Cincinnati Foundation is to stimulate artistic creativity and to provide quality educational and cultural experiences to the residents of Greater Cincinnati and the surrounding communities.
