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
Cost: FREE


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.

Note: This event was rescheduled from May 28 due to weather.

Image: The Luster Tannery: A stone building, built between 1848 and 1858, at 16360 Euclid Avenue, in East Cleveland. It was built as a tannery by Samuel Luster. This building is unique in function and style - while there are a few houses made of stone in the area, none are this large.
