Thank you to those of you who donated towards the renovation of the Historical Marker located on Lakeshore Blvd. near East 185th St.
In March, it was brought to the attention of Northeast Shores and the Collinwood Nottingham Historical Society that the sign is illegible to passing traffic. The marker notes that Moses Cleaveland founded the City of Cleveland and this area in 1796. “This marker is our history, and the sign is a way to showcase it,” said Mary Louise Daley, Historical Society, President.
The sign was originally installed in 1953 as a way to celebrate the State's 150th birthday. The sign is now about 60 years old which is why it is so worn out and needs to be replaced. If you would like to make a donation towards the renovation of the marker, you can send your donation to Northeast Shores Development Corporation, 317 East 156th St., Cleveland, OH 44110. Please write “historical marker” in the memo line. If you have any questions, please feel free to call Mary Louise Daley, at 216-664-4236
