District.

Recognizing its importance to Ontario’s history, the city recently designated Euclid between the 10 Freeway on the north end, down to G Street on the south, as a Local Historic District.

The avenue, a state highway, was developed by the city’s founders George and William Chaffey as the centerpiece of their new housing colony. The brothers built the median and avenue to serve as the main roadway in the city and to this day – an example of its historic significance to the city – homes spanning from its inception in the late 1800s to 1960s line Euclid.

Here’s the story and below is a map of what the district encompasses.
