I've often been asked by individuals how they can help in the efforts to preserve local history. Here's one way.
Are there individuals of local historical importance that you admire or who interest you? Check to see if there's a biography of them in the library. Perhaps the biography will mention where they lived or did their most important work.
If so, keep an eye on those locations. If they seem threatened, email us as soon as you can. If you've got photographs or background information, so much the better.
The City of Cleveland is in the process of demolishing a large number of vacant homes. If we don't all act now, it will likely be too late.
