Grant Deming’s Forest Hill to hold district-wide open house and garage sale

Gateway signs mark the entrances to Grant Deming's Forest Hill Historic Distrct.

Residents of Grant Deming’s Forest Hill Historic District (GDFH) are planning two June events to promote their neighborhood. On Sunday, June 23, from 2 to 4 p.m., realtors representing 20 homes currently listed for sale in the neighborhood will hold open houses.

On Saturday, June 22, the day before the open house, GDFH will host a community-wide garage sale. The event will take place from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. In case of rain, the sale will be rescheduled for June 29.

GDFH, listed in the National Register of Historic Places in 2010, is bordered by Euclid Heights Boulevard, and Lee, Cedar and Coventry roads. The neighborhood features more than 700 historic homes, mostly built between 1910 and 1930, in a variety of architectural styles. The open house will provide a convenient way for prospective buyers to tour several homes, in a variety of sizes and prices, at one time.

Current residents will staff several Welcome Houses throughout the neighborhood to provide information, answer questions and discuss the benefits of living in the district.

At least 10 real estate companies plan to participate in the open house. Prospective homebuyers and those interested in learning about the neighborhood are welcome to tour with or without a realtor.
