Euclid Golf website has new home
The website for the historic Euclid Golf Allotment has moved. Formerly housed at the now defunct CH-UH.net website, it now has its own URL: http://www.euclidgolf.com.
The website tells the story of the Euclid Golf neighborhood, an excellent example of early twentieth century real estate planning. Located near the top of Cedar Hill, Euclid Golf comprises Fairmount Boulevard from Cedar Road to Coventry Road and the side streets on either side. The neighborhood was listed in the National Register of Historic Places in 2002.
Euclid Golf was built on land owned by John D. Rockefeller, who lent it to the Euclid Club for its golf course. Developer Barton R. Deming employed Garden City principles and deed restrictions to entice the elite of Cleveland, while architects Howell and Thomas, Charles Schneider, and others designed splendid houses in the revival styles that defined gracious living. As prominent Clevelanders made their homes in Euclid Golf, Fairmount Boulevard became known as "the Euclid Avenue of the Heights."
