For nearly a century, the Terminal Tower has loomed over Cleveland’s skyline. But what do you know about the landmark?

Presenters Rebecca McFarland and Tom Pappas will share fascinating information about the Tower and the brothers who built it – along with the railroads that used this shiny, new terminal recently at our Main Branch.

Cleveland was still a boom town in the 1920s. Much of this progress was tied to the building of the Terminal Tower by the Van Sweringen brothers. The brothers saw a future in rail shipping and made certain that Cleveland was positioned to benefit from the building of a big, new terminal that welcomed commerce and personal travel.
