A Remnant of Cleveland's Past

The house located at 9400 Detroit Avenue, on the west side of Cleveland, has a storied history. While it currently serves as a house of worship and cultural and educational center for the Islamic Center of Cleveland, the house originally served as an Inn for travelers in the early nineteenth century who were taking the post road that ran from Detroit, through Cleveland, all the way to Buffalo, New York. Later, for more than 100 years, it served as the residence of three generations of the Ware family, including West Cleveland's colorful mayor and justice of the peace, Liberty H. Ware.
