Best-Laid Plans

When: Tue., July 14 2015

Inspired by the 1893 World’s Columbian Exposition in Chicago, the Cleveland Group Plan was to be "the embodiment of the City Beautiful Movement." Beaux Arts style buildings were to be arranged around a central mall. Daniel H. Burnham, Arnold W. Brunner, and John M. Carrere worked out of a New York office o come up with the final design. It was even presented to Mayor Tom Johnson. Public Auditorium and the Cleveland Public Library are relics of the plan. Find out what else was in the works at Cleveland Living History: A Discussion of The Group Plan of 1903, today's talk at the Happy Dog. It starts at 7:30 p.m. and admission is free. (Niesel)
