Happy New Year!
Thanks for a fabulous 2015 tour season! The tours have ended for the year, but will return on May 15, 2016. Over 22,200 attendees have enjoyed the award-winning tours in seven seasons to date. In 2015, the tours were awarded a Public Education and Awareness Award from the State Historic Preservation Office of the Ohio History Connection.
Historic Gateway Neighborhood Corporation is pleased to announce that the 2016 Take a Hike program has been awarded a Project Support grant from Cuyahoga Arts & Culture and a Strategic Initiatives Grant from Ohio & Erie Canalway.
