About Rick Swanson
Taken at Raccoon Creek park located next door to the cottage. The cottage is a magical spot to create wonderful memories.
Rick Swanson purchased this House in 2008
Why Rick Swanson chose East Springfield
The land has been owned by the family since the Mid 50's. After the Elmwood School for Boys closed, there were two other owners of the surrounding property. I believe one used it to harvest timber, the other gutted what was remaining of the Elmwood home and had the buildings torn down. In the mid 50's, my grandfather, James Evans of Girard, and partners purchased 200 acres including what is now Raccoon park. The cottage was rented to Micheal Obrien, a good tenant whom they sold the cottage to. He raised his family there and lived there until sold back to the family in 1987 when he died. In 1965 the partners sold the acreage of what is now Raccoon Park and kept four 2.5 acre plots west of Raccoon Creek along the lake. Two of those 2.5 acre lots is what the cottage sits on. It is our piece of paradise all year round and a big piece of our heart and family history.

We had a great stay at the cottage. It had everything we needed. The kids loved the park next door and played around the water all day long. A beautiful home! Hope to return again sometime.

Cottage is exactly as described. Very peaceful spot. Great spot to have a campfire looking out to the lake. Home is very nice with great woodwork. Front porch is fantastic. Looking forward to coming back during warmer weather.
