Celebrate the Jazz Age as you enjoy a craft cocktail in our historic Bingham-Hanna Mansion!

The Cleveland History Center is hosting their next History on Tap event on Saturday, June 19, 2020 from 5-9pm.

–              Prohibition-style cocktail lessons with the Western Reserve Distillery

–              Pop-up talk on Cleveland’s Mob history

–              Highlighted Collection pieces including a pop-up display of 1920’s attire from the Chisholm Halle Costume Collection.
