Bluestone historic group
Welcome! South Euclid's greatest strength is its people. We hope you'll join Bluestone neighbors for a stroll through our two pocket parks, our summer garden parties, or a friendly wave as you take you family and/or pets for a walk. We are a bike-friendly, kid-friendly, stroller-friendly, dog-friendly neighborhood and we love staying connected. We embrace our diversity and hope you will feel right at home.
We are perfectly situated in the middle of all the action. Within just 11/2 miles of our neighborhood, you'll find North Quarry Splash Park, Bexley Pool, the Playground of Possibilities, the dog park, Denison park, grocery stores, a pump track, a regional library, Euclid Creek Metropark and two major RTA bus routes.
During the housing and economic crisis of the late 2000s, two separate neighborhood groups (Plainfield/Winston Roads and Avondale/Argonne Roads) combined to stay connected and deal with problems created by the foreclosure crisis. After ten years of proudly and successfully serving this purpose, we became one unified community - The Bluestone Historic District.
From where does the name Bluestone come? Euclid bluestone is a sandstone discovered along Euclid Creek in the mid 1800s. By the 1860s a rock quarry was established to mine the rock which was mostly used for sidewalks, exterior steps, housing foundations, and windowsills. The quarry was active for about 40 years before concrete took over as a more desirable building material. Many remnants of the quarry can still be seen in the Euclid Creek Metropark. A couple of the original houses from that era located along Bluestone Road are still in use as private residences, and have been designated as historic landmarks. We are proud of the strong, immigrant, working-class roots of our neighborhood and our city.
The boundaries of the Bluestone neighborhood stretch north of Mayfield Road between Brookline Road and South Belvoir Blvd. and south of Bluestone between Plainfield and South Belvoir. The streets include Argonne, Avondale, Adrian, Ardmore, Delroy, Elmwood, Grantleigh, Plainfield and Villa.
