The Restless Viking: Forgotten Observatory

This article was originally published on January 26, 2021 on The Restless Viking website.

During the Pandemic, we focused on interesting abandoned locations. We discuss the history and some of the people that are mere memories of these locations.

This is our last exploration of an abandoned site.

Today, it sits on an overlook in East Cleveland. But the Case School of Applied Sciences – known as the Warner and Swasey Observatory – actually has an interesting history. In this video, we will take you through the ruins of the observatory and talk about the history of this abandoned structure.

Chuck and Martha Hayden, aka The Viking and Poppins, enjoy going on adventures off the beaten path. They also like to share their explorations with others. The Viking is a retired expedition leader while Poppins is a retired teacher. The two offer independent views of their journeys showcasing places, people, and cultures as they explore the world.
