From its 1860 founding as a modest dry goods emporium to its heyday as Cleveland’s premier department store, The Higbee Company became indelibly embedded in Cleveland consciousness. Decades of intriguing promotions, sparkling events in the store’s 10th floor community spaces, and distinctive dining in The Silver Grille made the Higbee experience memorable. That same classic Higbee energy is still alive, but today it’s centered on the beautiful Horseshoe Casino Cleveland, the building’s newest tenant. For almost a century Clevelanders have been drawn to the Higbee building, which has been a fixture in the heart of a great city. Relive the memories of years past, and learn about a key piece of downtown Cleveland’s newest renaissance. A Higbee History tells the entire story.
