Outdoor pet photos return to Clague House Museum

The Easter Bunny will be at the Clague House on March 27 to pose for photos with your pets.

Did you know that Westlake's beloved Clague family were also pet owners? Old pictures and family stories tell us they owned both dogs and cats, while living on the Clague Road farm.

Many years ago, it was common to have pets working on family farms in places such as Dover, now Westlake. Although most of our beloved pets are not working on farms these days, they are still a big part of our families.

Can you imagine if Sophronia Clague were here today! She would enjoy seeing all the pets at the Clague House having their photos taken. This month you have the opportunity to have your pet's photo taken, as Mr. Bunny returns to the Clague House Museum on Saturday, March 27, for pet photos from 1:00 to 6:00 p.m.

Grab your pet and make plans to hop on down to the museum, 1371A Clague Road in Westlake, to capture some special memories of your pet. Money raised goes to student scholarships and utilities.

We ask only a $10 donation, and you may also bring your own camera. Reservations are strongly encouraged. Due to Covid-19, we must require face masks and social distancing. Please arrive no more than 5 minutes before your appointment.

Please call 216-848-0680 to make your reservation or for questions.
