Bromfield Home To Re-open Saturday

Sep 27, 2013

The Ohio Department of Natural Resources will re-open the historic home of Pulitzer Prize-winning author Louis Bromfield on Saturday, after several months of renovations and restoration.

The Big House reopens at 10 a.m. tomorrow as part of Malabar Farm State Park's annual Heritage Days fall festival, which runs through Sunday. Bromfield's 32-room residence and farm were a popular getaway for Hollywood's elite in the 1940s and 1950s. Actors Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall were married there in 1945.
