Trace the history of Cleveland's East Fourth Street

Trace the history of Cleveland’s East Fourth Street with Alan F. Dutka, author of “East Fourth Street: The Rise, Decline and Rebirth of an Urban Cleveland Street.”

Once home to Cleveland’s opera house, central markets and five-and-dime stores, Fourth Street fell into disrepair in the second half of the twentieth century. Now, East Fourth Street serves as the center of a chic entertainment and residential district, perhaps the coolest place in Cleveland.

The Thursday, Nov. 17 presentation, held at the Bay Lodge on Bradley Road, begins with a social at 6 p.m., followed by dinner at 6:30 p.m. and program at 7 p.m. Dutka’s book will be available for purchase and signing.

The main dish will be provided by the historical society. Attendees with last names beginning with A through L should bring an appetizer or dessert for 10 to share. Those with last names beginning with M through Z should bring a side dish. All attendees should bring their own place setting and beverage. There will be a $10 charge at the door for non-members of the historical society. RSVP to or call 440-537-1581.
