Exploring Burk Run Terrace

454 vues

Publié le

Burk Run/St Clair Terrace. A unique nature-culture weave in Euclid, Ohio. At the Euclid-Wickliffe line, Burk Run cuts north through the Painesville Moraine to cross Euclid Ave. The stream then flows north on the St. Clair Terrace.
In 1797, Joseph Burk opened an inn on the Euclid side of the run. Girdled Rd (1800) & the Bishop Mill (1809) attracted settlers. Inns opened in Wickliffe.
In 1881, the Nickel Plate Railroad set the stage for area vineyards and a brickyard. Wickliffe’s brick downtown grew quickly, as did Noble in Euclid.
Post WWII growth killed local industry & railroading. In 1961, I-90 buried Burk Run and sucked manufacturing and settlement from the area.
The Burk Run tour explores the stream's cut through the St Clair Terrace and asks, “Can we restore this stream?”

At the Euclid-Wickliffe line, two branches of Burk Run cut north through the Painesville Moraine to cross Euclid Ave. Burk Run is Euclid’s largest yet least known stream. It has an interesting history and fairly good potential for basing a green stream corridor. Burk Run current geography
  3. 3. Arthur St. Clair (1737-1818) by Charles Peale First governor of the Northwest Territory Wikipedia Burk Run on the St. Clair Terrace East of Cleveland, the St. Clair Terrace rises subtly above the glacial till-covered lake plain to the north. To the south, at Euclid Ave, the terrace gives rise to the steep Portage Escarpment. Through the 1800s and early 1900s, the terrace was the focus of East Side agricultural and industrial development. Since the late 1960s the terrace has lost industry and population. Now, the St. Clair Terrace may prove helpful in revitalizing Cleveland’s eastern inner ring communities around green space and urban forest landscapes.

In the early 1800s, earth-based industries exploited natural resources. In the 1890s local nature drew the summering crowd and the estate builders. In the twentieth century, the suburban city lost interest in the nature and history of place. As the urban core shrinks, we may rediscover unique natural and cultural legacies and regain interest in our special places.
