Eliot Ness gained national fame for bringing down Al Capone and leading a team of law enforcement agents nicknamed The Untouchables. Unlike his persona, Ness was a suave, college-educated lawman who enjoyed boating, tennis, women, cats and scotch. Scrupulously honest, he went on to become Cleveland’s safety director.
Our narrated tour will include the Flats and other sites made famous by the Kingsbury Run Torso Murders; downtown Cleveland with a stop at the Police History Museum and Great Lakes Brewery (where we’ll see a bullet hole from a near-miss as he stood at the bar); University Circle, where Ness once lived; and Lake View Cemetery, where he is buried.
