Beaulieu, known as the Tremaine-Gallagher house, built around 1914, is one of the most beautiful and historic homes in Cleveland Heights. On August 28, this magnificent home was the venue of this year’s gala benefiting FutureHeights’ programs and operations. Guests toured the unique home including its English-Baroque living room, Roman-style foyer, Egyptian- and French-inspired bedrooms, the elegantly designed gardens and so much more!

The evening included a presentation by Beaulieu owner, Sally Smith and recognition of this year’s gala honoree Susie Kaeser, author of the recent book, Resisting Segregation: Cleveland Heights Activists Shape Their Community 1964-1976.
