The Society's headquarters houses an extraordinary group of distinguished collections including The Crawford Auto-Aviation Museum, nearly 200 vintage and antique automobiles and airplanes; The Halle Costume Wing, which houses more than 30,000 garments from the late 1700s to the present; The Hay-McKinney Mansion, a 1911 masterpiece where visitors can tour luxurious turn-of-the-century parlors and living areas; and the Library, where more than 20 million archives and manuscripts are available for all interested in genealogical research or any aspect of Northeast Ohio history. $5ΓÇô8.50.

In November 2014, the fully restored Euclid Beach Carousel began operating in a new WRHS space built specifically to house the treasure. Continuing a journey begun in 1910, the full restoration of the hand-carved wooden carousel horses was underway for more than a year. 

In addition to their University Circle location, WRHS also brings a Living Village to life at Hale Farm & Village in the heart of Cuyahoga Valley National Park.
