Cedar Fairmount’s Business District lies 150 feet overlooking Cleveland on what was formerly a lake plain formed by glaciers. swamps and ponds gradually gave way to woodland where Indians and early settlers sought game. The exploration of the Western Reserve brought traders and farmers. By the early 1900’s real estate developers turned Cedar Fairmount into the first planned neighborhood shopping area in the Heights.
Their design led to the completion of the Tudor style Heights Center Building in 1918 and the Demming House. Later the Heights Medical Building and others were added. One of the oldest buildings, the Alcazar Hotel, is on the National Registry of Historical Buildings, and the Heights Center Building received Cleveland Landmark status. In 2002, the Euclid Golf District was put on the National Registry of Historical Districts.
