History

The land currently comprising South Euclid was part of the Western Reserve, obtained via treaty with the Iroqois tribe in 1796 by the Connecticut Land Company. In 1797, Moses Cleaveland named the area east of the Cuyahoga River Euclid, after the Greek Mathemetician and Patron Saint of surveyors. Euclid Township was officially formed in 1809. In 1828 Euclid Township was divided into nine districts, with South Euclid becoming district two.

By the 1850s, the area was known as Bluestone, a reference to the large quarry operations of the mineral along Euclid Creek.
