Originally a portion of the Village of Euclid, the present Euclid-Green neighborhood was annexed to Cleveland by legislative acts in 1914 and 1926. The hillside which rises up from Euclid Avenue to the southeast divides the neighborhood into two distinct sections. The hillside is actually one of the beach ridges left as Lake Erie receded 14,000 years ago from its height of 200 feet above its present level.

Location: Bounded on the east by Euclid and Green Road and South by the communities of South Euclid, Cleveland Heights and East Cleveland, it is bounded on the north by railroad tracks that separate it from the Collinwood Neighborhood. Euclid avenue forms a spine down the middle of the neighborhood. The neighborhood comes to a point on the west at the City of East Cleveland. Neighborhood Map.

The portion of the neighborhood at the bottom of the hill (the area along Euclid Avenue and the rail lines) developed predominantly during the 1920's. It includes an industrial district along the rail lines. Between 1920 and 1930 the neighborhood's population more than doubled, rising from 2,035 to 5,026.

A second wave of construction occurred during the 1950's and 1960's as the area near the top of the hill was developed. The predominance of contemporary single-family development makes this area one of the City's most suburban-like neighborhoods.

This is particularly true of the winding streets and rolling hills of the Euclid Park subdivision, located generally between Green road and Belvoir Boulevard.

The median sales price for a single family home in 1999 was $57,000. Over 18% of the sales in the neighborhood over the last three years were between $75,000 and $99,000 and 27% from $60,000 to $74,999.Property sales information.

The community has four parks and recreational facilities: Endora Park, Duggan Playfield, Groton Playground and Belvoir Park and Boulevard. The community also has two shopping areas on Euclid Avenue at the intersection of Ivanhoe and at Green Road (Green Lite).
