The Western Reserve Historical Society operates five historical properties in northeast Ohio . The Society's University Circle complex houses a Library and two Museums. The History Museum features tours of a mansion built in 1911. You'll discover the lifestyles of the rich and famous, and of the servants whose lives differed dramatically from the mainhouse glamour. The Chisholm Halle Costume Wing is one of the top-ranked costume collections in the nation, showcasing garments from the late 1700s to the present.
The Crawford Auto Aviation Museum showcases antique, vintage, and classic automobiles and aircraft ranging from model T's to modern-day Jaguars. In both Museums, interactive rotating special exhibitions focus on many of the different chapters of life in the Western Reserve .
The Library/Archives & Genealogy Center is a principal repository for histories, records, and papers relating to the growth and development of Cleveland and the Western Reserve . Many patrons visit to learn about their family's history; and important archival collections include urban, ethnic, African American, Jewish, Irish, Italian, and Labor histories.
Hale Farm & Village is an outdoor living history museum featuring life and crafts from the 19 th century. It includes farm animals, pastures, and historic houses with guides dressed in period costume.
National Air Races - Aircraft from the Golden Age of Air Racing are one display, as well as several showcases filled with memorabilia. Interactive computers let you meet the daring pilots and see period footage for the races and crowds.
Working At White - The White Motor Company began in Cleveland as an off-shoot of the White Sewing Machine Company, making it one of the most diverse manufacturers in Cleveland. From well-built, elegantly appointed steam-powered cars to a Yellowstone National Park bus, this exhibition salutes one of Cleveland's most important manufacturers, and tells the rich, and moving personal stories of the employees who made it succeed.
Tinkerbelle - On June 1, 1965, Robert Manry sailed from Falmouth, Massachusetts to Falmouth, England, in Tinkerbelle, a small, hand-built boat that many thought would never be able to make the journey. Despite doubts and dangers, Tinkerbelle and Manry made it to Britain. The Western Reserve Historical Society has the famous boat and various pieces of memorabilia from the journey, on display.
