Come home to the Clague this Christmas

The Clague House Museum is decorated for Christmas and will host open houses on Dec. 15 and 22 from 2-4 p.m.

Add a little old-fashioned flair to your holiday celebration this year! The Westlake Historical Society will hold two Holiday Open Houses at the historic Clague House Museum. The dates are Dec. 15 and Dec. 22 from 2-4 p.m. Eggnog and cookies will be served during both holiday open houses. Everyone in the community is welcome to attend. There will be holiday crafts for the kids.

Admission is free; however, donations for the historical society will be welcomed and appreciated. A collection box will also be set up ready to receive non-perishable food donations to benefit the emergency food and assistance program.

Junior and senior docents will be available to answer questions about the house and its history, as well as provide guided tours by request.

The Holiday Open House is an annual guest favorite. The museum will be decorated for Christmas. Copies of the Juergemeier Farm DVD, the Clague House ornament along with other Historical Society memorabilia and stocking stuffers will be available for purchase. Don't forget that memberships also make wonderful gifts.

Plans are underway for the creation of  a “Westlakeopoly" board game. Local organizations and businesses who are interested in securing a space for the  "Westlakeopoly" game, should contact Lysa at 440-808-1961, or by email at
The  Clague House, constructed circa 1876, originally sat on a 78-acre farm and was the home of the Clague family. The home is owned by the city of Westlake but operated by the Westlake Historical Society. The historical society is a nonprofit, all-volunteer organization. New members are always welcome.
