In the center square of town this free stop has the walls inside engraved with the names of all the brave men and women who served in the Revolutionary War form the nearby counties.Beautiful Bronze statues and the caretakers is one of the nicest polite people you could ever meet.

Located in public square in Downtown Cleveland. This is right across from the entrance to Tower City. It's free and displays many Civil War artifacts. The curator was filled with information and tid-bits on local history you just cant get from the library.

There is some interesting information and visuals on Cleveland's contribution to the civil war if you are interested in that kind of thing. The space though was old musty. Not really worth the time to make a special trip there unless you are... More

This is a beautiful monument and full of history. Tim, who runs the monument, is full of historical knowledge and eager to share. A historic Cleveland gem that is maintained by people who actually care about history.

If you are on Public Square, you cannot miss the Soldiers' and Sailors' Monument. To honour the fallen in such a spectacular way. If you study the significance of each statue, you understand the deeper meaning on the monument. My mother and I got to do their underground tunnel tour which was very informative and interesting.
