New signs mark Euclid Golf and Shaker Farm National Register historic districts

In November, the Cleveland Heights Landmark Commission installed historic district signs at key entrance points to two of the city’s 11 National Register historic districts: Euclid Golf, which was listed in 2002, and Shaker Farm, which was listed in 2012. New signs for the Shaker Farm district were installed at Fairmount Boulevard and Shelburne Road, West St. James Parkway at the Roxboro schools, and Lee and Fairfax roads. The Shaker Farm district was added to the Fairmount Boulevard Historic District signs at Coventry Road and Fairmount Boulevard and at Wellington Road and Fairmount. New signs for Euclid Golf were erected at Ardleigh Drive and Fairmount Boulevard, Scarborough Road and Demington Drive, Coventry and Clarkson roads, and Demington Drive and Cedar Road. Euclid Golf was added to the existing Fairmount Boulevard Historic District sign at Coventry Road and Fairmount. The base of the sign at Fairmount Boulevard and Cedar Road was found to have rusted through, causing the sign to fall over. The city plans to replace the sign in the spring when it installs signs for the soon-to-be listed Euclid Heights Historic District.
