AAA Editor Notes

The Cleveland History Center is at 10825 East Blvd. at the Western Reserve Historical Society in University Circle. The property includes a variety of places to explore the story of Northeast Ohio. One of the biggest draws is the Crawford Auto Aviation Museum, which consists of more than 150 antique, vintage and classic vehicles and aircraft, not all of which are on view at one time. A highlight is the Goodyear Blimp gondola. Setting the World in Motion features vignettes about Northeast Ohio's transportation and industry history with automobiles, aircraft, archival documents, ephemera, fine and decorative arts, clothing, textiles and other objects from the society's social/cultural collections. REVolution: The Automobile in America is the newest exhibit in the collection and features more than 50 cars. The Chisholm Halle Costume & Textile Wing features changing exhibits compiled from the center's permanent collection. You can also tour two historic mansions—the Bingham-Hanna and Hay-McKinney houses—and take a ride on the restored 1910 Euclid Beach Grand Carousel. Photography is permitted in most areas.
