Located north of Huber Heights, Ohio Carriage Hill Farm is part of the Five Rivers MetroParks System of Montgomery County.

In 1831, Daniel and Catherine Arnold bought land from Henry Harshbarger.

A two-story log house already existed on the property when the Arnolds arrived via a dry creek bed in their oxen pulled wagon. It would be years later before the brick farmhouse seen here would be built.

The farm is maintained to resemble the way it would have looked around 1880.

The livestock raised by the Arnolds included Merino Sheep and Poland China Hogs. RMB
