Dunham Tavern Museum and Gardens

10am - 5pm

Visit Dunham Tavern and Gardens on GardenWalk. The Tavern Museum and Gardens will be open during GardenWalk on SUNDAY ONLY. Visit the Gardens from 10-5 and the Museum from 11-4.

Once a stagecoach stop of the Buffalo-Cleveland-Detroit post road, today the Dunham Tavern Museum is the oldest building still standing on its original site in Cleveland. The 1824 home of Rufus and Jane Pratt Dunham in MidTown Cleveland is now a designated Cleveland Landmark. The Museum and its gardens offer a glimpse of history and insight into the lifestyles of early Ohio settlers and travelers. 

In the 1930's, the Tavern served as studio space for a group of WPA artists and printmakers. 

From a press release in March of 2014, it was announced that the Museum had acquired a sampler done by Loretta Jane Dunham. This artifact is displayed along side another sampler done by Caroline Sarah Dunham. For the first time in 179 years, the samplers will be together, enhancing the collections of pieces already available for viewing. 

Stroll along the Heritage Trail and add another dimension to your visit. Surrounded by industrial and commercial development, the Museum is a reminder of the Western Reserve as it once was. Our 900 ft. path features depictions of early settler life along with a stagecoach, log cabin, and community gardens featuring landscaping and local vegetables.
