The HISTORIC wooden street of Cleveland: Hessler Crt.

There exists a street in Ohio that is as interesting as the history of Millionaire’s Row. Some streets of myth are paved in gold, some in silver, some with yellow brick, however we have one in Ohio that is paved in wood- Norfolk Pine to be exact and it is masterfully laid.

The street is laid using the same method that the brick rounds were, tile by tile meticulously placed and leveled so that the traveler has an easy trip.

It is beautiful and intricate nestled in a cozy little cul de sac that you would miss even if you were looking for it. (It’s the shortest street in Cleveland at 300 feet) I suppose that’s part of the intrigue.

The interesting part is that at one time the whole street was paved in pine. The cost of that today would be astronomical although worth it because it has stood the test of time..it was constructed in 1920. Sure, it has shown wear but wouldn’t you?
