Who else is getting excited for History Day? Founded in Cleveland in 1974, National History Day is a project-based learning experience for students in grades 6-12 that builds college and career skills for the 21st century by making the historical past relevant to the present and the future. To participate, students choose topics in relation to the yearly theme, conduct research, and present their findings as a paper, exhibit, documentary, website, or performance. This year's theme is Triumph and tragedy. Stop in this Saturday, March 16th, after 2pm to see the hard work and research of local students.

Did you know today is International Women's Day? International Women's Day is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women - while also marking a call to action for accelerating gender balance. The first International Women's Day occurred in 1911, supported by over one million people. Today, IWD belongs to all groups collectively everywhere. As part of International Womens Day we celebrate the women like Dorothy Humel Horvorka who were bold and daring and made a positive difference for women in the community. This dress, featured in WOW Factor, Dorothy wore for her final solo piano performance with the Cleveland Summer Orchestra in 1959. One might imagine that a classical musician should wear more serious clothing, but Dorothy dressed with color and flair onstage. This dress is made of layers of dusty purple net, but a bright pink lining peeks through, and glows in certain light. She found success as a pianist for decades before devoting herself to musical philanthropy, as a trustee of the Cleveland Orchestra and President of its Women’s Committee, and as President of the Cleveland Music School Settlement. #iwd2019 #internationalwomensday #womenshistorymonth #womenshistory #americanhistory #history #museum #fashion #philanthropy #philanthropist #216 #330 #440 #ohio #cle #cleveland #clevelandgram #clegram #ohiogram #exploreohio #clestartshere #thisiscle #friday #women #downtowncle #downtowncleveland #universitycircle #wrhs #westernreservehistoricalsociety #becauseofherstory

Looking for something to do today? We're open for Presidents Day from 10am - 5pm! Fun piece of history, Presidents Day was originally established in 1885 in recognition of President George Washington. The holiday would become popularly known as Presidents Day after it was moved as part of 1971’s Uniform Monday Holiday Act. This legislation was passed in an attempt to create more three-day weekends for the nation’s workers. While several states still have individual holidays honoring the birthdays of Washington, Abraham Lincoln and other figures, Presidents Day is now popularly viewed as a day to celebrate all U.S. presidents, past and present. IN THE PHOTO: Marcus Hanna and Theodore Roosevelt sitting in a carriage with two other men. This photo was taken in 1902 and is part of the WRHS collection. #thisiscle #clestartshere #cleveland #clevelandgram #clegram #presidentsday #clevelandohio #ohio #216 #440 #330 #ohio #exploreohio #president #theodoreroosevelt #roosevelt #americanhistory #museum #downtowncle #downtowncleveland

We’re excited to share the news that our Curator of Costumes and Textiles, @pedmonson , wrote a chapter in the new Shaping the American Interior textbook. This text brings together 12 original essays about the development and definition of the field of interiors in the United States from 1870 until 1960. It investigates the profession of interior design, attempts to commoditization taste, shape modern conceptions of gender and professionalism, and so much more. Congrats Patty, and great job! #thisiscle #clestartshere #curator #interiordesign #design #published #cle #cleveland #clevelandohio #clevelandrocks #clevelandgram #clegram #ohio #ohiogram #216 #330 #440 #theland #exploreohio #museum #history #americanhistory

On this #museummonday we're featuring musician, Justin Holland. Holland was a black musician and composer best known for his works on the guitar, his role in the antislavery movement, and as a leader in black Masonic fraternities. Born in Norfolk County, Va. to free blacks, Holland went to Chelsea, Mass. in 1833, where he worked and studied flute and guitar, before attending Oberlin Preparatory Department (1841-42) and spending two years in Mexico learning Spanish so he could read the methods of the Spanish guitar masters.He would come to Cleveland around 1845, and would establish himself primarily as a guitar teacher. He is also credited with 35 original guitar works and 300 published arrangements. In 1874, Holland's Comprehensive Method for the Guitar was pronounced by critics as the best work of its kind in America. As a performing artist, Holland played the flute, piano, and guitar. . . . #blackhistorymonth #blackhistory #africanamericanhistory #cle #cleveland #clevelandohio #clevelandhistory #historymuseum #clevelandgram #clegram #ohio #ohiogram #216 #330 #440 #theland #museum #clevelandrocks #music #musichistory #thisiscle #clestartshere

We're saddened at the loss of Cleveland icon, Frank Robinson. Frank Robinson, the Hall of Fame outfielder who hit 586 home runs and became a racial pioneer as the first black manager in the major leagues, nearly three decades after Jackie Robinson broke modern baseball’s color barrier playing for the Brooklyn Dodgers, died on Thursday (2/7) at his home in Los Angeles. He was 83. Robinson made his debut as the majors’ first black manager with the Cleveland Indians on April 8, 1975, 28 years after Jackie Robinson (no relation) first took the field with the Dodgers. Rachel Robinson, Jackie Robinson’s widow, threw out the ceremonial first ball. #thisiscle #cleveland #clestartshere #clevelandohio #clevelandgram #clegram #ohio #ohiogram #216 #330 #440 #theland #clevelandindians #mlb #blackhistorymonth

I decided to give myself a snow afternoon because nobody’s got time for a full day off. So now, my biggest decision is whether to watch Alison screw up another house on Windy City Rehab or to finish the new episodes of Kimmy Schmidt. 🤷🏻‍♀️ • • • #thislovelylight #cleveland #iheartcle #happyincle #thisiscle #clevelandphotographer #lookslikefilm #bridalparty #engaged #clebride #clevelandweddingphotographer #ohioweddingphotographer #ohioweddings #theknotohio #kinfolk #rookeandrovercrew #wedohio #adventurebride #weddingphotos #ohio #weddingphotographer #firstsandlasts #harrisburgweddingphotographer #pittsburghweddingphotographer #paweddings #dirtybootsandmessyhair #bride #ohiobride #clestartshere at Cleveland History Center

The CUYAHOGA RIVER FIRE (22 June 1969) dramatized the extent of the river's pollution and the ineffectiveness of the city's lagging pollution abatement program. Mayor Carl Stokes was an integral part of pushing environmental legislation that would not only pave the way for environmental conservation efforts locally, but would pave the way nationally as well. In the photo, from Cleveland State's Special Library Collections, Mayor Stokes addresses the media near the site of the 1969 river fire.
