(The Green Farm)

Paul Arthur Sorg. Bide-A-Bit 1906. Arthur Sorg was the son of an affluent resident of Middletown, Ohio. His father, P.J. Sorg, was associated with the American Tobacco Company. The family spent summers in Lakewood in the 1890's and early part of 1900's. Paul Sorg completed this mansion he called "Bide-a-Bit" in 1906. It was designed by an English architect and combined Tudor-style elements with aspects of a Scottish hunting lodge. The carvings of the exceptional interior woodwork include figures from Chaucer's "Canterbury Tales". Paul Sorg died in 1913 and his wife, Jennie, continued to summer in Lakewood until she died in 1929. At that time, John Coe, a local resident, opened the mansion as a tearoom called the Sorg Manor. It continued as a tearoom under the ownership of of Edward and Augusta Green in 1950. The new name, The Green Farm, was carried from their previous tearoom in the Stow area. In later years the tearoom was closed and the Greens developed an elegant gift and clothing shop. It was closed in 2000 and sold to private interests.
