Whatever happened to the renovation of the Crawford Auto-Aviation Museum?
After a brief hitch, the plans are back on track, with construction expected to begin in January, reports Gainor Davis, president of the museum's operator, the Western Reserve Historical Society. The Crawford, located in a downstairs wing of the historical society's University Circle headquarters, closed in September in preparation for its roughly $3.4 million makeover. During a three-week period, workers carefully loaded the vintage cars, airplanes, motorcycles and other vehicles in the museum's collection into moving trucks. "The hardest part of it was moving the planes," which required removing their wings, said Davis.
