Exiting the Crawford Galleries at the Cleveland History Center, visitors will enter the reception area of the historic Bingham-Hanna Mansion.

Between 1916 and 1919 on the land neighboring the Hay-McKinney property, Harry Payne Bingham built a 35 room house designed by Walker and Gillette, with a landscape by Olmsted Brothers and featuring ironwork by Samuel Yellin and tile pavements by Henry Mercer’s Moravian Pottery and Tile Works. Never occupied by the Binghams, who settled in New York , the house was purchased in 1920 by Coralie Walker Hanna, widow of Leonard C. Hanna, who lived there until her death in 1936. In 1940, her son, Leonard C. Hanna, Jr., gave the house to WRHS in return for the WRHS building located at Euclid Ave. and E. 107th St.

The home features thick walnut doors, heavy stone mantels, marble walls, and mosaic floors. The second floor of this mansion currently serves as storage for WRHS fine & decorative arts collection.

Western Reserve Historical Society is the oldest cultural institution in Northeast Ohio, the region's largest American history research center, and one of the leading genealogical research centers in the nation.
