Tickets going fast for tour of homes by architect Charles Schweinfurth

By Mary Beth Breckenridge Published: August 21, 2013

Cleveland architect Charles Schweinfurth (1856-1919) designed such Northeast Ohio landmarks as the Cuyahoga County Court House and Cleveland’s Old Stone Church, as well as some of the area’s finest homes.

You can tour three of his buildings during two upcoming tours sponsored by the Cleveland Artists Foundation.

If you’re interested, don’t delay. Tickets supplies are limited, and as of this morning only a handful were left for each tour.

On Sunday, Sept. 15, two properties will be open: Schweinfurth’s own home, built in 1894, and the Montessori High School, formerly the Staub/Russell Home. The Schweinfurth house will be open from 1 to 3 p.m. and the high school from 2:30 to 4:30 p.m.

Then, on Sunday, Oct. 20, the Shoreby Club will be open from 2 to 4 p.m. The Bratenahl club was originally the home of Cleveland industrialist Samuel Mather. Art historians will speak on the merits of artworks housed at the club, and local architects will lead a tour.

Tickets for each event are $30 for members of the Cleveland Artists Foundation and $35 for nonmembers. Details and a mail-in order form are here.
