An Evening of History

Thursday, June 16, 2022 | 6:00pm – 9:00pm
14800 Hillbrook Drive, Chagrin Falls, Ohio 44022

Join us for an entertaining evening of stories of Cleveland’s past told by our city’s most notable storyteller, Dan Ruminski!

Dan will give insight into Millionaires’ Row and the lives of some of Cleveland’s most influential families, including their contributions to our city’s greatness during the late 1800s to early 1900s. While many mansions on Euclid Avenue are no longer standing, The Club at Hillbrook, of the same era, remains with many of the original stunning architectural details intact.

Throughout the evening, attendees will enjoy a live musical performance, heavy hors d’oeuvres, beer and wine, and gather for an entertaining presentation by Dan about a nostalic period in Cleveland’s long history. The evening will conclude with coffee and dessert and the ability to stroll the original mansion home of The Club at Hillbrook, and ask Dan any lingering questions!

All proceeds from the event will benefit The Music Settlement. $115 per person includes hors d’oeuvres, beer and wine, coffee and dessert, and admission to The Cleveland Storyteller. Valet parking is complimentary.

Space will be limited, so reserve your spot today. We hope to see you there!

More on Millionaires’ Row:
What was once known as “the most beautiful street in America” is now a distant memory over a century later. Cleveland’s Euclid Avenue, otherwise known as Millionaires’ Row, was once the residential street of some of the most influential families in American history and their lavish estates. These monstrous mansions with broad sweeping lawns, ornate architecture and wondrous landscapes used to be home to industrial tycoons and celebrated philanthropists like Rockefeller, Mather, Wade, Severance, Gund, Stone, Brush and Everett and political figures such as John Hay, Tom Johnson and Leonard Hanna. Now, only 10 homes remain on the once famed avenue. And most of those are hidden from view by the byproduct of their industrial architects – buildings. These homes were once stunning monuments to America’s growing prosperity. Those remaining sit like relics releasing a hint of what once was “the most beautiful street in America.”
