Highbrook Lodge

Highbrook Lodge, the first camp in the United States built specifically for blind or visually impaired persons, was opened in June 1928, the gift of three pioneering Cleveland Sight Center volunteers and early supporters: Prudence Sherwin, and Ida and Josephine Grasselli. Five miles south of Chardon, Ohio, it is named for a rippling stream that descends the length of Highbrookrsquos gently sloping hillside.
