History Lessons

NOTE: This post has been updated with a corrected time for the Wednesday and Saturday programs.

The Cleveland History Center is offering visitors something extra this summer: free talks and gallery tours to further explore the city’s past.


A historical highlight will be featured most Wednesdays and Saturdays at 2 p.m. through Aug. 31. One exception is “Cleveland’s Crooked River,” being presented tomorrow and Friday, just in time for the 50th anniversary of the infamous Cuyahoga River fire on Saturday, June 22. (Come back to CLE on the Cheap on Friday for more on that.)

Other scheduled topics include Millionaires’ Row, Eliot Ness and Suffragists of the Western Reserve. Millionaires’ Row was presented last week, but there will be encore presentations Aug. 14 and 17.


Those who remember Euclid Beach Park might enjoy a talk and tour on Wednesday, July 17, and a full-day celebration on Saturday, July 20, of the amusement park that closed in 1969.


The summer talks and tours are free for visitors with regular admission and for Western Reserve Historical Society members.
