Virtual Tour of East Cleveland Township Cemetery
Come for an intimate, virtual tour of one of Cleveland's most-interesting and best-kept secrets: The East Cleveland Township Cemetery:
THIS Wednesday, July 22, 2009
Superior Schoolhouse, Euclid Heights Boulevard & Superior Road
The East Cleveland Township Cemetery consists of 12 acres of land in University Circle off East 118th Street. Largely forgotten by some Clevelanders, it has been surrounded by urban legend for decades and embroiled in litigation since its founding in 1859. The story has now been uncovered and fact has been separated from fiction.
Please join Nancy Fogel West, vice president and secretary of the East Cleveland Township Cemtery Foundation, and author of To Dwell with Fellow Clay: The Story of the East Cleveland Township Cemetery – for a look at the perpetual home of some of Cleveland's – and the Heights area's – most fascinating settlers, politicians and heroes.
Reservations are required. Call 216-291- 4878.
This event is sponsored by The Cleveland Heights Landmark Commission, the Cleveland Heights Historical Society and the East Cleveland Township Cemetery Foundation. Parking on-site for handicapped and elderly--all others park at Cumberland Park parking lot near pool.
