A virtual tour of Cleveland's most interesting secrets

Nancy Foegel West's To Dwell With Fellow Clay: The Story of East Cleveland Township.

The East Cleveland Township Cemetery is made up of 12 acres of land in University Circle. It is an area that is hardly remembered by Clevelanders even though it has been surrounded by urban legend since its founding in 1859. Finally, the fact has been separated from the fiction and the real story of the cemetery has been uncovered.

Join Nancy Fofel West, vice president and secretary of the East Cleveland Township Cemetery Foundation, and author of "To Dwell With Fellow Clay: The Story of East Cleveland Township Cemetery", as she presents a virtual, in-depth look at Cleveland and the Heights' most interesting settlers, politicians and heroes.

The event will take place on Wednesday, July 22 at 7:00 p.m. in the Superior Schoolhouse located at Euclid Heights Blvd. and Superior Rd. Parking will be available at the Cumberland parking lot and limited parking for handicapped and elderly is available at the schoolhouse.

Reservations are required for this event. Please call 291-4878 to RSVP and visit www.ectcf.org for additional information.

This event is sponsored by the Cleveland Heights Landmark Commission, Cleveland Heights Historical Society and the East Cleveland Township Cemetery Foundation.
