Discover Lake County’s renaissance man and the Western Reserve’s master architect Jonathan Goldsmith during a historical program at 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Aug. 23, at our Main Branch.

A speaker from the Lake County History Center will explore Goldsmith’s life. He is best known as an architect who worked primarily in the Greek Revival style. He constructed more than 40 homes and commercial buildings in the region, including the Fairport Harbor lighthouse. One Goldsmith house is a centerpiece of Hale Farm & Village. The door of another is on permanent display at the Cleveland Museum of Art.

But Goldsmith was also a peer of Sam Houston and a famed Texas Revolutionary leader. Learn more about his life and stories during this free program, including why Goldsmith chose to live in Lake County when he was so popular in Texas.

The talk is free to attend. Due to limited space, registration is required. Sign up on our website or by calling us at 440-255-8811 ext. 1.
