Jim Borchert speaking Saturday on suburban history

Local history lovers have a great weekend shaping up in a few days. In addition to the ever-popular Ohio City Home Tour on Sunday (below), on Saturday the Western Reserve Historical Society's lecture series on Millionaires' Row features a talk on the history of the city's elite suburbs by CSU emeritus professor Jim Borchert. The lecture, "The Strange Case of Cleveland's Disappearing Upper Class, 1885-2006," is at 1:30 pm at the Society's East Boulevard location. Admission is required and reservations are suggested. I had the good fortune to have studied under Dr. Borchert and know him to be a delightful and knowledgeable person. (details)
