Playhouse Square 

Cleveland has the most unique theater district in the USA.

I took an opportunity to play tourist and view Playhouse Square on a free tour day.
Most of these theaters were built  in the 1920's when Cleveland was booming with industrial wealth.
In 1972 they were all closed, fairly run down and ready for demolition.
One man, a school teacher, decided they needed to be saved and he spent the rest of his life making sure that happened.
There is a lot more to the story and I would encourage you to take the free tour to learn more about the history.
Thanks to Tom, our tour guide for the day. He has been a volunteer for 40 years.
The fireplace and mahogany pillars have an interesting story. Send me an email for details.
