'Captain America' Spotted While Filming At Harcourt Drive Home

Quiet on the set has a new meaning on Harcourt drive in Cleveland Heights.

"Captain America: The Winter Soldier" has been filming in Cleveland for weeks and on Wednesday afternoon came to a home at 2178 Harcourt Boulevard to film a short scene.

According to media reports, the home is being converted into a nursing home where Cap, played by Chris Evans, is visiting with his fellow World War II veterans.

Also on scene was actress Hayley Atwell, who played Captain America's love interest in the first film and was dressed as an elderly woman.

At about 5:40 p.m. Evans walked out of the house and hopped in line for some dinner. He grabbed a styrofoam tray of grub and then headed to a tent to eat.

After dinner Evans arrived back at the set in a black SUV and walked back in the house.

The home, which is for sale, is a Cleveland Heights landmark. It was built in 1915 for Kermode Gill, who built the Terminal Tower and Central Union Station, according to Zillow.

The Manor has only had two owners and has not been on the market in 55 years.

It is priced at $899,000.

The historic home mentioned in this article is priced higher than the Telling Mansion, home to the South Euclid-Lyndhurst Public Library. The Library Board is selling Telling Mansion for only $755,000. There is no reason for this:the Board states it will only cost $5 million to renovate Telling but $12.6 million to build a new library that the community does not want or need. They are ramming this project and others in Parma and Parma Heights and Mayfield down our throats. The Library Board never asked the community what it wanted and made the decision to circumvent the ballot box. The library board unilaterally issued $75 million in bonds that all Cuyahoga County residents must pay back to the bond purchasers. It will cost taxpayers another $100 million in interest on this $75 million. Committee to Save the South Euclid-Lyndhurst Mansion Library has filed an injunction to stop the sale of Telling Mansion--a building on the National Register of Historic Places.

from the looks of Atwell, she has white markers on her face indicating that they'll use Digital Enhancements to make her appear older.

But Johnny, stick to the topic, what on earth does that have to do with the wonderful Telling Mansion?
