Like many communities, Cleveland Heights has groupings of
streets named in pairs or sets of three. Not exactly triplets or twos,
because no two of our streets are named exactly alike, our sets of three
or two streets are hereby designated because they have names closely related
and are in proximity.
Perhaps the best known of these sets is Queenston, Kingston
and Princeton Roads--known for generations as our "royal" streets."
Along with regal-sounding Canterbury Road, they form the old Shaker Lakes
One of Cleveland Heights' oldest tracts is the turn-of-the
century Uplands Subdivision, featuing Oak and Sycamore (plus Whitethorn)
Roads. Part of the original alure, or course, was the oaks and sycamores
gracing the streets. Nearby are Redwood Road and Forest View Drive.
We have the German-named streets of our Brunswick Park tract--Brunswick
and Dresden Roads and Hanover Drive. The first and last are shared with
East Cleveland. In addition, there's ultra-short Bayreuth Road.
Finally, we have two adjacent "shire" streets
that connect Euclid Heights Boulevard to Coventry Road in the Euclid Heights
tracts--Lancashire and Hampshire Roads. Although we have several other
"shire" streets, these two evoke a somewhat uniform public image.
Cleveland Heights has many other streets forming "families."
But no one exerted any effort to come out with such obvious "family"
connections when naming them!
