Tuesday topics: Cleveland's Union Terminal

Registration begins...February 4, 2020 In the 1930s, Cleveland saw terrific change. In spite of the Great Depression, our city held on with jobs and progress. Much of this progress was tied to the building of the Terminal Tower by the Van Sweringen brothers. These brothers had a future vision of Cleveland that hinged on its success as a railroad terminal. They saw a future in rail shipping and made certain that Cleveland was positioned to benefit from the building of a big, new terminal that welcomed commerce and personal travel. Tonight we'll show you some of the fascinating aspects of the Tower and the brothers who built it - along with the railroads that used this shiny, new terminal! Presented by Rebecca McFarland and Tom Pappas.
