17019-25 Lorain Avenue

As with many properties in the West Park neighborhood, this building has historical significance, according to the West Park Historical Society. The Alber Building was built in 1924 and named after John Alber (1851-1948). Mr. Alber was born near Stuttgart, Germany, immigrated to Cleveland with his family when he was a year old, and spent the rest of his life in West Park. He was a farmer and businessman who, at one point, owned the SE quadrant of Kamm's Corners, which included the land between Alger Cemetery and Rocky River Drive from Lorain Avenue to West Park United Church of Christ. Albers Avenue was named after Mr. Alber, whose name was sometimes recorded as Albers. Mr. Alber is buried in Alger Cemetery.

West Park Historical Society

Free food and refreshments will be available to add to the festivities. While there, note the walls lined with more than 100 historical West Park photographs at the society's new, permanent office. Check it out and meet members. Sign up to join and learn more about their mission. This ground floor location features a meeting room, which is available to rent and holds up to 60 people. To rent the meeting room, call Elaine Staley at 216-267-3857. If needed, leave a voice message and she will get back to you ASAP.

Transportation for Livable Communities Initiative (TLCI) Grant Establishes Plan for Lorain Avenue

How could Lorain Avenue from West 160th to the West Park Rapid Transit Station look in the future? This study commissioned by KCDC with a steering committee comprised of city officials and staff, neighborhood stakeholders, and residents attempts to identify future development opportunities as well as pedestrian, bike, and transit amenities that might be part of our future. City Architecture designed the plan, and it was rolled out at a public meeting in July. Not all of this will come true, of course, but this plan will be used to guide future development when opportunities arise. Download the 10.4 MB plan here.
