Tom O’Grady- These Are My Jewels: The Architectural and Sculptural Legacy of Levi Tucker Scofield
February 24 @ 6:00 pm
A master-builder, Levi Scofield designed a number of the largest public buildings in Ohio in the 19th century. These included school buildings, asylums, orphan’s homes, penitentiaries, and federal buildings. He designed two major sculptural works, first viewed at the 1893 World’s Columbian Exposition in Chicago, which now occupy a couple of the more precious pieces of real estate in Ohio, the Statehouse grounds in Columbus and the Public Square in Cleveland. Scofield designed homes for Euclid Avenue millionaires in Cleveland and was one of the few golfing partners with classmate John D. Rockefeller. Most of the legacy of this Ohioan has been demolished. Only a couple of these endangered treasures remain.
