Kettering Ohio’s historic farmhouse now serves as a venue for weddings, receptions, conferences and meetings. The Kettering Parks, Recreation and Cultural Arts Department operates the venue which holds the Polen Farmhouse, Polen Farm Barn, and gazebo. The property was created by Joseph Bigger in 1854 and was called the White Oak Farm. In 1940, the property was purchased by Russell V. Pollen who was a General Motors/ Frigidaire executive who transferred the property to the City of Kettering in 1979.
