A History and Tour of Public Square

  • Cleveland Public Square (map)

A one-hour walking tour uncovering 222 years of history along the perimeter of Public Square. You’ll learn about astonishing historical events that took place in this small, less than 10-acre plot of land! Stand on the same land that animals used for pasture; where Presidents were viewed as they lie in state; where tall architectural towers were built and others imploded; and where street lights illuminated a city for the first time anywhere. Also, where Cleveland, against all odds, became the best location in the nation.
