Happy Birthday President Garfield!

James A. Garfield was an extraordinary, influential man
born on November 19, 1831 in Moreland Hills.
His near poverty and humble beginnings prepared him for a life of servitude
as he rose to become a scholar, a Civil War hero, a congressman, and a President.

Join us when we celebrate the 187th Anniversary of his birth with cake & ice cream!

How Long will a House Last?

In September 2018 we began discussing This Old House in Moreland Hills. Five homes were represented at our meeting. Our focus was a Village-wide Century Home Program and how to navigate the research required to prove that a home is at least 100 years old. With new resources available online we aim to bridge the gap between the old way of researching, (by visiting the Archives), and newer databases available online.

Best Wishes Ed Haney


It is with regret that we learn of the retirement of our friend, advisor and advocate Ed Haney.  Ed educated and entertained Northeast Ohio audiences for decades portraying James A. Garfield .

We will miss Ed’s stories, smiles, his bringing Garfield to life and sharing “Garfield” dollars.   Ed was an exemplary portrayer so that his contributions to our Community will not be forgotten. It was my pleasure to learn from his example.

On behalf of the Moreland Hills Historical Society and the JAG Birth Site, we thank you Ed Haney and wish you health and happy years in your retirement.
