The Cleveland Heights Historical Society was established in 1983 as a nonprofit organization dedicated to discovering, preserving and promoting the heritage of Cleveland Heights, Ohio.

This blog – in conjunction with our website – will further these goals by providing the public with up to date information on news and events relating to the history of Cleveland Heights.  In addition, our blog will spotlight some of the best content we’ve collected over the years telling the stories of the people, places, and events that shaped Cleveland Heights. Look here, as well, for new research and new stories currently being collected by historians uncovering aspects of the city’s past. Be sure to check back often for new updates and announcements!
