Burk Run/Hillandale. 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.
In 1847, the Isaac E. Brush family built a substantial Greek Revival house. Charles Franklin Brush was born here.
In 1898, J.R. Outhwaite built Hillandale in Euclid. J.E.French built Nutwood in Wickliffe.
In 1910, Nela Park developer, Burton Tremaine, bought Hillandale. He quickly built the log house and, later, the Hillandale bridge.
Current owners of ~80 acres of ecologically significant land include the Providence Missionary Baptist Church and the City of Euclid.
The Burk Run Hillandale tour explores the stream's cut through the Painesville Moraine and possibilities for conserving the area a Euclid Escarpment Ravine Preserve.

  2. 2. With glacial retreat, 18,000 years ago, rushing melt water generated many streams along the Portage Escarpment. Euclid Creek formed between the pre-glacial Cuyahoga and Chagrin valleys. Moraine Hillandale Euclid Creek watershed © 2014 Bluestone Heights Hillandale and glacial retreat Chagrin Valley Cuyahoga Valley Richmond Rd Mayfield Rd North of the Euclid Moraine, in Euclid, a half-dozen escarpment runs formed with flows directly to Lake Erie. Burk Run is the largest of these streams. Hillandale lies on an important Burk Run headwater.
  3. 3. © 2014 Bluestone Heights Euclid and Painesville Moraines The Portage Escarpment in Euclid Moraine USGS LiDAR elevations railsandtrails.com Google Earth aerial viewer During its northward retreat, the last ice front stalled twice at the north edge of the Portage Escarpment. With each stall, a ridge of fine debris (moraine) accumulated along the front. Chardon Rd 2. About 14,000 years ago, ice retreat stalled at the escarpment base. The Painesville Moraine was laid down. 1. About 16,000 years ago, ice retreat stalled atop the escarpment edge. The Euclid Moraine was laid down. Locally, the Euclid forced melt water westward, thereby forming Euclid Creek east branch. At Hillandale, small head-waters gathered to flow northward to Lake Erie. Burk Run was thus formed. In Wickliffe, the Painesville forced melt water eastward to the Chagrin Valley. Pete’s Pond and Gully Brook were thus formed. Burk Run / Hillandale
  4. 4. Burk Run / Hillandale Wave- and Stream-Cut Moraine Chardon Rd Doan Brook gorge, looking southeast Southeast Moraine Hillandale stream cut moraine Painesville Moraine wave cut moraine The Euclid Moraine lay above the highest reach of ancestral Lake Erie. For a brief period, the Painesville Moraine formed an ancestral Lake Erie shoreline. The Painesville’s northern area was therefore cut flat by wave action. Waves never touched the southern area. Here, stream action has cut deep ravines.

Early History In 1798, Joseph Burk opened an inn where Euclid Ave crossed Burk Run. Hospitality remains significant in local commerce. In 1847, the Isaac E.

On it, each stream cuts a knick point waterfall and gorge. During the last 14,000 years, the bluestone knick points have migrated upstream. USGS LiDAR elevations railsandtrails.com Google Earth aerial viewer Bluestone Knick Points Highland Reserve Greenwood Farm Richmond Rd On the East Side, the Euclid Bluestone Terrace is a broad expanse of hard sandstone. The cap rock resisted Ice Age glacial buldozing. In current terms, the bluestone cap rock forms a large terrace stretching from Cleveland Heights eastward to the Chagrin River.

The resulting ravines are short but deep and voluminious. They have special ecologies. Four large escarpment ravines are available for conservation within the City of Euclid. Highland Reserve Richmond Rd The headwater ravines are ripe for conservation. Now is time to preserve these ecological treasures.

Highland Reserve Richmond Rd In 2015, Bluestone Heights will undertake an ecological inventory within each of the four ravines. The results will help determine the ecological value (natural capital) present within the City of Euclid. Burk Run at Hillandale is one of the four ravines. Burk Run / Hillandale
