The Development of Cleveland Heights: What the Van Sweringens Learned In-Person

The presentation will begin with a brief look at the early years of the Van Sweringens and the changes that were taking place in Cleveland that led to the development of East Cleveland Township. It will continue as we examine the development of the portion of the East Cleveland Township on the Portage Escarpment that we know today as Cleveland Heights, including Euclid Heights Allotment, Cedar Heights, Mayfield Heights, Ambler Heights, the Forest Hill Allotment, and the Euclid Golf Allotment. Finally, with a look at the lessons that the brothers learned that built the foundation for their successful development of Shaker Heights.
