For nearly 154 years, WRHS has maintained its commitment to preserving and inspiring people to discover American and northeast Ohio history. Decisions like this are not made lightly, and after many thoughtful conversations among the staff, board, and trusted partners & stakeholders, WRHS determined that suspending public access to the Cleveland History Center is the most responsible action we can take under the circumstances.
The Cuyahoga County Stay at Home Advisory issued November 18, 2020 supplements existing statewide orders through a data-driven framework to help reduce the virus’s spread and engage and empower individuals, businesses, communities, local governments, and others in their response and actions. As such, it is recommended that individuals leave home only for supplies and services.
