Freedom Festival! at the Cozad-Bates House
June 26, 2021 from 1-3 p.m.
Restore Cleveland Hope is partnering with The Extended Family for the Cleveland Museum of Art’s Parade the City for a Freedom Festival! at the Cozad Bates House at 11508 Mayfield Road.
At the end of the event we will be opening the new Underground Railroad Interpretive Center for small groups to tour. This is our first opportunity to open the UGRR Interpretive Center to the public.
Restore Cleveland Hope and The Extended Family will be displaying our Underground Railroad Quilts and telling the stories of the symbolism they carry. You will hear the dramatic story of Sara Lucy Bagby who escaped from Virginia and came to Cleveland via the UGRR. You will also learn about Cyrus Ford who was an active abolitionist in what is now University Circle
This will take place in the newly designed grounds surrounding the historic Cozad-Bates house which is the only antebellum structure left in University Circle. Be ready to join us as we all search the grounds for answers to our Find & Seek Game.
This is a free event for the whole family.
