About This Location

The Hines Hill property was originally built in 1904 as a summer home for the Jaite family, who owned the Jaite Packaging mill. During the summer months, they enjoyed a spacious house (now the home of the Conservancy’s administrative offices), as well as a barn (now the Hines Hill Conference Center) and a chicken coop (now the Stone Cottage). The most recent owners were Robert and Phyllis Gioia (pronounced “joy-a”), who purchased the house in 1975 and played a big role in shaping the look of the buildings today. Robert Gioia was a demolitions contractor with a passion for funky pieces of art and architecture. In his work, he was constantly on the lookout for new pieces to salvage and add to his home in the Cuyahoga Valley, many of which you can still see.
