News from the Western Reserve Historical Society

From time to time the society receives news from other research facilities and we like to pass that information along to our members. If you are planning on doing any research at the History Center at the Western Reserve Historical Society, please take note of some parking changes.


Parking Notice

Effective Monday, May 4, 2015, the History Center parking lot will be closed for renovations.  With funds from the State of Ohio and Northeast Ohio Regional Sewer District, and in partnership with Behnke Associates, Inc. and F. Buddie Contracting, WRHS will renovate the parking lot and exterior grounds leading to the Reinberger Plaza entrance. The improvements include a full facelift with improved access, new parking controls, and refreshed landscaping. This upgrade will improve guest access, safety and overall appearance of the History Center's nearly 8 acre site in University Circle.


Limited accessible parking will be available at the half circle drive off East Blvd. Alternate parking can be found throughout University Circle and at the VA parking garage. Guests are encouraged to consider taking advantage of the Circle Link shuttle transportation that circulates throughout Wade Oval.
