Welcome to the Cleveland Heights Historical Society
The Cleveland Heights Historical Society is a non-profit organization that is dedicated to preserving and promoting the diverse character and traditions of Cleveland Heights, Ohio.

As some of our virtual visitors know, Cleveland Heights was one of the area's first "bedroom communities." Conceived of as an elite garden suburb by Patrick Calhoun and John Hartness Brown in the last years of the 19th Century, Cleveland Heights has evolved into a wonderfully eclectic and architecturally significant community with a unique flavor and personality. Through this web site, it is our goal to profile the people, places, structures, and activities that have contributed to the special heritage enjoyed by the city's residents and visitors.

Most of our entries will be updated regularly, so please bookmark this site and plan to come back regularly.

CHHS (and our web site) are growing fast; and we welcome your input. If you would like to learn more about the Cleveland Heights Historical Society, join our organization (it's very inexpensive), or provide resource information for this site, please Contact Us.

In the future, CHHS may have its own physical home, but for now, we are a cyber society.
