Architectural Tour of Dover Township - Founding Homesteads to a Lustron Home
Sunday, October 27, 2013 at 1:30 PM
Speakers: Will Krause, Steve Kish, Ginny Peterson, Lysa Stanton & others
We will meet in the Porter Room at Westlake Porter Public Library, 27333 Center Ridge Road, Westlake, Ohio 44145.
Dover Township, first settled by non-Native Americans in 1810, eventually became the cities of Bay Village and Westlake.
Join us at Porter Library for a brief presentation on the early 20th century Sears homes recently identified in these two communities as well as a look at an all steel mid-20th century Lustron home in Westlake. The tour will begin with a stop at the c. 1828 Stocking home which was moved several hundred feet in 1920 to make room for an outstanding Sears kit house. We will then visit the c. 1876 National Register listed Victorian Italianate Clague House Museum, the c. 1898 National Register listed Richardsonian Romanesque Lawrence mansion now part of the Cashelmara condominium complex, and the BAYArts campus in Huntington Park which features the former Huntington Estate's classic Arts & Crafts bungalow grounds-keepers cottage, c. 1894 Irene Fuller Victorian home, and original 1882 Dover train station. All of these buildings have been re-purposed, three have been seen worldwide either due to their connection to the famous 1954 Sam Shepherd murder case, or because their preservation included a trip on a barge. The program will conclude at 5:00 PM with an optional dinner at Vento La Trattoria located within the charming Dover train station mentioned above, which is within the Metroparks Huntington Reservation at 28611 Lake Road, Bay Village, Ohio. The restaurant is willing to stay open just for us on a Sunday evening as long as we have at least ten confirmed reservations by Saturday, October 12, cash only.
Please RSVP with your restaurant reservation to Will Krause at 440-864-5784 by Saturday, October 12.
Please RSVP with your tour reservation to Sarah Klann at 216-226-2820 by Wednesday, October 23.
