Join the walking dead on October 8 & 9 for the revival of Historic Haunts: Detroit Shoreway’s family-friendly interactive walking tour, designed to both fright and delight audiences with a selection of vivacious, nefarious, and hilarious Cleveland histories. Presented by the West Clinton Block Club in cooperation with Near West Theatre and the Northwest Neighborhoods Community Development Corporation, visitors will experience a lantern-lit, guided walking tour filled with artistic storytelling as they navigate the charming residential areas surrounding Gordon Square Arts District.
In the tour, flash back to one hundred years ago by stepping into a world of Cleveland’s most famous and infamous characters of a bygone, post-influenza-pandemic, era. The 1920s notably brought Cleveland some of its most beloved landmarks in Tower Terminal, The Gordon Square Arcade and the theatres of Playhouse Square. It marked an end to the long-fought women’s suffrage movement, the beginning of a highly-contested prohibition, and the Jazz Age. The Cleveland baseball team even won a World Series! No matter 1921 or 2021, Historic Haunts promises a fun and unique fall experience for audiences of all ages.
Run time approx. 60 minutes. Tour is just under a mile long. Find information on free parking here.
