This new web project aims to strengthen the
Cleveland and Northeast Ohio history community.

For the consumers of history information

For those interested in the history of our city and region, who attend exhibits, lectures and classes, read books and web content - history "fans" and "buffs" - we plan to describe and link to the major Cleveland and Northeast Ohio history resources.

We will also provide links to smaller, more specialized history sites and programs. We will emphasize what's new and what's coming.

For those who create and preserve content

Our libraries, archives, history societies. museums, authors, web developers, and those who offer programs in local history have resources to share.

We hope to promote greater use of these resources, to increase attention, attendance and web traffic, particularly to new and hard-to-find assets, to new exhibits, both real and virtual, and to announce major exhibits coming soon.

This website is in the planning stage as we meet with others in the history community.
