We are taking you back over 153 years to April 14, 1865. It is Good Friday. People are so glad to have the war over! It will be this evening that Abraham and Mary Lincoln will be attending the Ford Theatre in Washington, D.C. You know the rest of that story. Mr. Lincoln has been reincarnated as Gerald Payn, former dairy farm owner / operator and later science teacher and current member of several historical operations. He is coming to us from Wooster. Gerry's portrayal of Abe Lincoln has received rave reviews from those who have seen it. All are welcome! No charge for attendance!

The South Euclid / Lyndhurst Historical Society has been serving the Greater Cleveland, Ohio community ever since 1966. We operate a museum (est. 1977) and give history talks at area schools, clubs, churches, and other organizations.
We also meet periodically with lectures on various historic topics pertinent to our cities and area.

March 23rd 2018 Update:
Our museum moved to the Gatehouse (4629 Mayfield Road, South Euclid, Ohio 44124) on the Telling Mansion property and we have now reopened in part - just the main floor for now.
We have two special exhibits: Our quilt collection and our military clothing and equipment. This is the centennial of World War I and it shall stay until the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month (Armistice Day, now called Veterans Day).
