The Beachwood Historical Alliance hit its one-year mark this month, and so I wanted to thank the members and contributors that have helped make our organization – and this website – such a success over the past twelve months, as well as offer a quick assessment and word of my own about the future.
First – to our members, contributing past and current residents and borough officials: without your encouragement; attendance and participation in these early meetings; recollection of places, people and events since passed; and photographs, documents and other artifacts to offer historic visual ties to our borough, the Beachwood Historical Alliance would be nothing more than a failed good intention and empty website. A special mention also goes to my family and the families of all those who have given their time to this organization. From the bottom of my heart, thank you.
Next, a short assessment and recap of the year. Read the rest of this entry »

Our regular monthly meetings, typically scheduled on the last Thursday of each month at 7pm in St. Paul’s Lutheran Church on Cable Avenue in the borough, will for the next two months, November and December, held the last Wednesday. This is due to the holiday conflicts of Thanksgiving and New Year’s Eve falling on the last Thursdays for this particular year. In the future we will be adopting this alternate schedule for whenever foreseeable holiday conflicts arise.
Anybody of any age or residence who is interested in Beachwood’s past is invited and welcome to attend, participate in our activities, bring along some old photos and sit in and listen to Beachwood stories of years gone by, perhaps contributing a few of your own.
Our full winter and spring meeting schedule can be seen below. All alternate schedule dates (the last Wednesday instead of last Thursday) are marked with an asterisk. All meetings will be held at 7pm in St. Paul’s Lutheran Church.
Stop by and say hello!

The founding members of the Beachwood Historical Alliance would like to extend our invitation to everyone interested in taking part in our activities to research, record and communicate the history of Beachwood Borough that our meetings are held the last Thursday of each month, at St. Paul’s Church on Cable Avenue, at 7pm. Some committees to be formed within the BHA include the Research Committee, Centennial Pine/Environmental Committee, Structure Committee, Downtown Committee, and Budget/Finance Committee.
If you’re interested in coming out to see what we’re all about, or are curious and would like to receive more information about our organization and its committees/projects, please send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or stop by on one of our meeting dates:
Thursday, July 30th
Thursday, September 24th
Thursday, October 28th
Thursday, November 26th
(December Thursday meeting to be rescheduled as it falls on Christmas Eve)
This site will begin receiving regular updates lending further detail to our committees, projects, ideas and directives, but the best way to find out is to stop by one of our meetings and say hello – we don’t bite, and are always excited to meet anyone else interested in the borough’s history.
