You may already be familiar with the beauty of the Cleveland Cultural Gardens – more than 30 themed gardens that beautify the drive along Martin Luther King Jr. and East boulevards in Cleveland – but do you know their history?

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard was originally named Liberty Boulevard, and it honored the young men from Cleveland who fought and died in World War I. The gardens were planned as a path to represent the many cultures that came together in Cleveland. It’s beautified with fountains, statuary, trees from Japan, roses from Verona, and the soil of more than 40 nations.

People can learn more about the Liberty Gardens’ history at 6:30 p.m. on Monday, May 9, at our Main Branch. Rebecca McFarland, a fourth-generation Clevelander and expert on local history, will give a free talk on this terrific topic. McFarland’s expertise has been featured on A&E’s Biography and the History Channel.

The program is open to all. Due to limited space, registration is required. You can sign up on our website at 440-255-8811 ext. 1.
