The Bramley House

6775 Brecksville Rd.

Independence, OH 44131.  

The Fuller Bramley House was constructed in 1856 out of local quarry sandstone and is an excellent example of early Greek Revival architecture.  This historic treasure was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1959.  The house was occupied by the Bramley family from the 1850’s until 1996 when it was bequeathed to the Independence Historical Society. After an extensive renovation, “The Bramley” is now a small conference center/museum available for rent.
