LOUDONVILLE — The Mohican Historical Society and Cleo Redd Fisher Museum will kick off the Fall Speaker Series on Monday, Sept. 18 by welcoming author Brad Schwartz.

Schwartz, a Cleveland native, recently published the book “The 1936-1937 Great Lakes Exposition,” detailing the event better known as the Cleveland World’s Fair. Schwartz will provide an inside look into the Exposition’s staggering array of ever-changing national-level attractions and feature events.

In a single day, Exposition visitors could experience the latest technological innovations; view a world-class aquatics extravaganza; watch a Shakespearean play; ride in a blimp; and hear the music, taste the food, view the architecture, and experience the culture of more than 40 of the world’s countries.

The program will include a look at the never-before-seen images of the Exposition’s people, architecture and attractions—which reveal both the Exposition’s grandeur and the impact on the City of Cleveland during the Great Depression.

This free program will begin at 7 p.m. in the CRF Museum, located at 203 E. Main Street in Loudonville, with Schwartz’ book available for purchase afterwards. For more information please visit www.crfmuseum.com.

The Life section is supported by Brethren Care Village in Ashland.
