A Few Facts About Euclid Creek:

The southern portion of Cleveland Metroparks Euclid Creek Reservation is the site of the abandoned village of Bluestone, which flourished in the late 1800s and early 1900s. Its inhabitants quarried the prized blue-gray stone for use in construction and in building sidewalks, some of which still remain throughout surrounding neighborhoods. The reservation also includes stands of rare rock chestnut, part of a densely wooded environment that supports a renewed wildlife population. Some of the inhabitants making a comeback in the watershed include bald eagles, red-tailed hawks, wild turkey, coyote, beaver, red fox, and white-tailed deer.
