Peace returns to the Cultural Gardens

Cleveland's beautiful Cultural Gardens in Rockefeller Park had fallen on hard times in the Sixties, Seventies and Eighties, as people stole statues for scrap, dug up plantings and trashed these famous landscapes, created earlier in the century to commemorate the many ethnic groups who composed greater Cleveland. Today the Gardens are witnessing a revival. (Robert L. Smith. "Cultural Gardens reviving." Plain Dealer. Tuesday, August 29, 2006. Page B-1). For more on the Gardens, see the Cleveland Cultural Gardens Collection in Cleveland Memory, which includes an e-book edition of Clara Lederer's Their paths are peace.
