Cleveland Study Tour
Join the Victorian Society as we explore the history, art, and architecture of the Metropolis of the Western Reserve — Cleveland, Ohio! The program begins with a downtown walking tour through several landmark Victorian structures, including Levi Scofield’s Soldiers’ and Sailors’ Monument (1893–4), Burnham and Root’s Society for Savings Bank (1889-90), and Schweinfurth’s rebuilt Old Stone Church (1884). That evening, guests will enjoy a private reception at Charles Schweinfurth’s Union Club (1903-5). Friday begins with a coach tour of Ohio City and a private tour of the ICA museum conservation studio. We will then travel to the Cleveland Museum of Art for lunch and time to explore, followed by a tour of Wade Memorial Chapels Tiffany interior and the recently-restored Garfield Monument at Lakeview Cemetery. Our final day includes a private tour of Kirtland Temple (1833-36) and Lawnfield, the home of President James A. Garfield.
