Overview

Join local history preservationist Christopher Busta-Peck and unearth aspects of Cleveland's past that dangle too near extinction from city memory. Too often, we think of history as something that happens elsewhere. But it's not. Travel down East 100th Street to the home where Jesse Owens lived after he shocked the world at the 1936 Olympics. Ascend the stairs to Langston Hughes's attic apartment on East 86th, where the influential writer lived alone during his formative sophomore and junior years of high school. From the massive Brown-Hoist Building and the Hulett Ore Unloaders to some of the oldest surviving structures in Cleveland, Busta-Peck—of the wildly popular Cleveland Area History blog—has Clevelanders talking about history again.
