The holiday season is upon us and the Westlake Historical Society continues to stay busy.

It is our pleasure to welcome visitors to The Clague House Museum throughout the year. Those wishing to set up an appointment to see the museum should call us at 216-848-0680. Our museum store has several stocking stuffers and hostess gifts for the holidays.

Many years ago members of the Westlake Historical Society began placing wreaths on the graves of founding and pioneer citizens of early Dover (now Westlake) buried in Evergreen and Maple Ridge cemeteries. Individuals, groups, families and  companies can sponsor a holiday wreath this year in memory of anyone buried in Westlake, not just a founder or pioneer.

Westlake Historical Society volunteers will place the wreaths on the graves throughout the holiday season at both cemeteries. The requested donation for a wreath is $15. Call the Historical Society at 216-848-0680 or go to
