OUR HISTORY Elmwood stands strong because of its rich history. In the early 1900s, Harry Gammeter, a utopian, believing that the whole world would be transformed into a paradise if people strongly believed in love, beauty, and respect of one's neighbor, founded the Elmwood Hotel and Resort, then known as Elmwood . . ."The Inn Beautiful" in Green Springs, Ohio. In 1972, Ron and Judy Robinett (Blaha) purchased Elmwood Nursing Home in Green Springs because of its beauty and history of public service. In 1984, their daughter, Kathy Hunt, became the CEO of Elmwood and has led Elmwood through many years of expansion and development in Seneca and Sandusky counties.
