Meander Hill, located at the top of scenic Meander Reservoir in Austintown, Ohio, first opened its doors in 1965. Since that time, it has been family owned and operated and has grown into the areas premier Early American home furnishings store.

The converted 1860 dairy barn was bought by Jack Rees in the mid 50’s to be used as a photography studio, as he was a photojournalist by trade. After almost a decade of restoration, Rees finally moved into the barn and opened up his photography studio. During this time he also sold antiques on the side to make ends meet. He eventually turned his attention to selling antiques and Williamsburg accessories fulltime.

In 1970 Rees met his wife Barbara at the store. Since then, the two have run the store together with dedication and pride. In 2004, the couples’ youngest son Evan, joined the day-to-day business so that Jack and Barbara could take some well deserved time off.

Since it first opened, Meander Hill has evolved into an Early American home furnishings store specializing in furniture, pictures, lighting, rugs, and accessories. While it might be more prosperous to deal in other styles and periods of furniture, our love and knowledge of Early American furnishings allows us to give a better product and service to our loyal customers.

Aside from furnishings, Meander Hill is also known for its traditional and unique fall and Christmas décor. A lot of time is spent finding the right items so that our customers can be confident that they can find quality pieces here every year.
