Cleveland History Center
You’re the type of person who wants to go where other people aren’t. Or, maybe you think you’ve seen all there is in the Circle. We’ve got an itinerary for you too!
Start at the Eastern boundary of University Circle at The Sculpture Center, a collection of contemporary works by emerging Ohio artists. Discover the collections of the Dittrick Museum of Medical History on the campus of Case Western Reserve University where your curiosity will be rewarded with rare medical books, artifact collections, and medical equipment from the 1800s. The Reinberger Gallery at Cleveland Institute of Art showcases works from students and faculty. Housed at CIA’s new Euclid Avenue location, where the building itself is part of history – it sites on renovated site of a 1915 Model T factory.
Nearby, sneak a peek inside the austere Church of the Covenant and you might be treated to the sound of the McGaffin Carillon bells. Discover 12 Signs of the Zodiac and Fountain of the Waters, sculptures by Chester Beach, in the Fine Arts Garden between Wade Lagoon and the Cleveland Museum of Art.
The Cleveland Museum of Natural History is home to Balto, the famous canine hero of the 1925 Nome Serum Run, and the James A. Garfield Monument at Lakeview Cemetery, in which the US President and his wife are interred. The Cozad-Bates House, currently undergoing restoration, is the only pre-Civil war house remaining in the Circle. The East Cleveland Township Cemetery on E.118th is the final resting place for war heroes from every major war (VERIFY).
When you’re done with all that find repose on a bench in Stephanie Tubbs Jones Community Plaza right next to a life-size statue in tribute to the late Congresswoman, located at E. 108th and East Blvd.
Take Hessler Court (just off Bellflower) - Cleveland’s only surviving wood block street- on your way to the Barking Spider Tavern, a bar and live music venue that is possibly the Circle’s best-kept secret!Back to Day Trips
