Cozad-Bates House

  • Address 11508 Mayfield Road Cleveland, OH 44106

The Cozad-Bates House is distinctive, and its history deserves a future. As the only pre-Civil War residential structure remaining within University Circle, built around 1853, it is a rare surviving example of Italianate-influenced residential architecture, including a hipped roof, curved bay windows, paired eave brackets, and a prominent belvedere. The National Park Service listed the Cozad-Bates House on its registry in 1974, and the City of Cleveland made it a historic landmark in 2006. The home was saved from possible demolition by the Cleveland Restoration Society, Restore Cleveland Hope Inc., and University Circle Inc. in 2006. And, the first steps to restore the house continue to this day. Donated to UCI by University Hospitals, the home is also reflective of Cleveland’s anti-slavery era and legacy of abolition left by the settler families who built homes within University Circle and aided freedom seekers through Ohio’s Underground Railroad network and the Cleveland area, which was known by the secret code name “Hope.”
