Tour the Soldiers and Sailors Monument 

When: Sat., April 16 2011

Join members of the Shaker Historical Society this morning for a private tour of the circa-1894 Soldiers & Sailors Monument on Public Square. The behind-the-scenes journey provides a tip-to-toe peek at the recently renovated landmark, including the interior Memorial Room, the bigger-than-life bronze sculptures on the outdoor esplanade, and the 125-foot column topped by a statue of the Goddess of Freedom. Tim Daly, executive director of the monument commission, will do the explaining. The structure, incidentally, was designed by architect and sculptor Levi T. Scofield, and commemorates Cuyahoga County's Civil War veterans. The tour is free, but participants are asked to reserve in advance at 216-921-1201 or by e-mailing shakerhistory@shakerhistory.org. The tour steps off promptly at 11 a.m. from the base of the monument on the southeast quadrant of Public Square. — Cicora
