I wanted to highlight the old Cleveland Trust Company Bank Building, which of course today is Heinen’s Grocery Store. Just last week, the lights that back-light the beautiful stained glass dome were fully replaced! It was a large undertaking but they are fixed. It is amazing what a difference it makes.
The Cleveland Trust Dome was done by Italian immigrant Nicolas D’Ascenzo not Louis Comfort Tiffany as many previously believed. The dome is 61 feet in diameter and stands 85 feet off the floor. It along with the murals by Francis Millet help make the building a Top 10 Place to visit in Cleveland according to TripAdvisor!
