Cleveland Starts Here®, sponsored by the Jack, Joseph and Morton Mandel Foundation is the starting point for all audiences, from first-time visitors to life-long residents, to immerse themselves in Cleveland’s stories from the 1790s to today. Using the latest technologies and techniques, digital media, hands-on interactives, films, art and historical artifacts never before on display are now accessible for visitors to experience. From the first Cleveland map and early survey tools, to a lunar descent engine and LeBron James’s championship shoes, Cleveland Starts Here® tells the stories of the triumphs and tragedies that define Cleveland. These stories of innovation, immigration, entrepreneurship, and diversity inspire visitors to create their own chapter in this ever evolving story. Audiences around the world can also access WRHS’s extraordinary collections online via the Cleveland Starts Here® digital portal.
