Open House & Free Ice Cream Social
The Cleveland Historical Society once again will be holding an Open House and free ice cream social to thank the community for their support throughout the past years.
This year we have some very interesting new acquisitions and the feature of the afternoon will be the former St. James Church, that now is the home of the Cleveland Historical Society. This coming year she will celebrate her 150 anniversary and is a fine example of Gothic architecture. St. James has beautiful windows, altar and hard chestnut pews.
The ice cream sundaes are free and will be served on the lawn with our beautiful setting by Tannery Pond. Please join us Sunday. August 14 from 1 to 3. Address is 7 North Street, Cleveland, NY.
