Historic Resources

The Cleveland Historic Resources Committee Mission is to advance the preservation of Northeast Ohio’s architectural heritage.

The goals of the committee are to:

  • Serve the needs of the profession and the public in regional legacy advocacy and education for preservation
  • Advise AIA Cleveland’s Executive Board on matters related to historic buildings and districts
  • Offer expertise in historic architecture to AIA members, allied preservation organizations, and the public
  • Promote the value of preservation and its contribution to creating a better quality of life
  • Enhance standards of practice for preservation architects

The Cleveland Historic Committee meets regularly on the 2nd Wednesday of each month at 5:30pm at the AIA Cleveland Center for Architecture and Design.

Cleveland Architects Project (CAP) is an ongoing and evolving research project illustrating the relation­ships among architects, their mentors and their protégés within the Cleveland area from the 19th through 21st centuries.  The goal is to create a dynamic online diagram showing these relationships that can be utilized by architects, historians and students.  This lineage project, documenting the rich history of architects and their relationships, has never previously been completed. The diagram will be interactive and will allow for additional information, such as significant projects and awards to be added at a later time.

The Cleveland Historic Resources Committee wishes to include Cleveland-area architects who were owners or partners of firms at any time. Please follow the link and complete the information so that we can ensure that our online database is accurate.
