An East Cleveland Walking Tour of Industry, Art, and Architecture
With Christopher Busta-Peck, Founding Editor of Cleveland Area History
Saturday, June 09, 2012, 12:00PM - 2:00PM
Meet: New Life Cathedral, at 16200 Euclid Avenue, East Cleveland, Ohio
Join us on a tour to some spectacular (and forgotten) places. Along Euclid Avenue, we'll see the remnants of Cleveland's early industry, in the massive stone tannery (c. 1850) on Nine Mile Creek – the nucleus of this neighborhood's settlement. A very different use of the area's sandstone will be seen in the best collection of early grave markers in the region. We'll head onward to a few houses that once lined Euclid Avenue, including one that may be among the oldest in the county. Before looping back, we'll stop at a grand house, built c. 1850, facing Euclid Avenue and hidden in plain view.
Christopher Busta-Peck is the founding editor of Cleveland Area History, (http://www.clevelandareahistory.com), the voice of history and historic preservation in greater Cleveland. With a background in art, he writes local history as you've never seen it before, focusing on the visual narrative. His first book, "Hidden History of Cleveland", was published by History Press last November.
