Virtual Freedom Festival & RCH Cozad-Bates House Opening

As you may know, the Cozad-Bates House, a historically significant underground railroad station and the only pre-Civil War structure still standing in the University Circle area, has been under construction and the new Underground Railroad Interpretive Center will be revealed soon.

You are invited to join Restore Cleveland Hope for our virtual celebration of what is an inspiring, historic, and fun place to visit in University Circle. We will treat you to some of the artists who have performed at our Freedom Festival! In addition, we will show you what the house looks like inside and a bit of the outside. We would love to be gathered together in the newly landscaped front yard, but that is an event we will plan for the future.

Our celebration will be Live Streamed on Thursday, April 8 at 7pm.
