The Peninsula Foundation supports a showcase of traditional roots music in the storied G.A.R Hall called Voices in the Valley. The Grand Army of the Republic Hall (GAR Hall) was originally built in 1851 as a one-room schoolhouse for Boston Township. It was used as a school until a new building was constructed across the street in 1887. In 1888, the building was remodeled into a meeting place for Civil War veterans.
The Peninsula Foundation was formed in 1997 by the late Robert L. Hunker and serves area residents, visitors, and school children by promoting historic preservation, maintaining archives, preserving artifacts, and providing tours of our historic buildings. The foundations preserves the heritage, maintains the character and promotes the vitality of Peninsula, Ohio and the Cuyahoga Valley by engaging the community through arts and educational programming and historic preservation.
We have designed everything from brochures to concert posters to branded wine labels that all celebrate the history of Peninsula and the thriving arts community surrounding them.
