Does anyone have the backstory on the Tremaine-Gallagher house (shown in link). I cannot find much but would love to know its story as well as its original owner's... http://www.loc.gov/pictures/search/?q=Photograph%3A%20oh0016&fi=number&op=PHRASE&st=gallery

On May 15, 1978, Ord. 716-78 was passed designating Ceska Sin Sokol Hall as a #Cleveland Landmark. Built in 1890 as Hungaria Hall, it was purchased in 1907 by a group Czech societies. Read about its history and importance to NE Ohio College gymnastics: https://t.co/Ln1dp0EbQJ

LOL that is next door (sort of) and I am pretty sure it is still in use as a gym.

I was served adult beverages in most of those bars although I was underage ID's weren't required. Here is a photo I took at the BP Riverfest circa middle 80's.

Redirected from the Cleveland West Park thread... Mining Company wasn't in Parma. It was in Cleveland -- 5100 Pearl Road. It was in the same building with another Cleveland institution of my teen years -- Peaches records. Mining Company was to the right of the tower.

This became another club in the 90s.  I might or might not have been there.

I apologize @KJP , between this and Lucky's, that is two Cleveland border establishments you have had to correct in as many days! In my defense, it was my dad's fault, haha.

While Western Reserve was playing their home football games at League Park during this era, Case Tech played at their games at lowly, but historic, Van Horn Field.  Here's an aerial view of a home game from 1935:

Side historical note: September 28, 2018 will mark the 100-year anniversary of famed Notre Dame coach Knute Rockne's coaching debut at the football field shown in this aerial, Van Horn Field.

You'll also notice a few prominent buildings, plus all the houses along Adelbert Road and Euclid Ave that are no longer standing.
