Glenville is a neighborhood east of the city of Cleveland in the state of Ohio. The district was born in 1870 as an independent city it did not really become a district of th…e city of Cleveland until 1904. At its beginnings the district was considered as a dormitory equivalent to a hotel village which served the layer of well-to-do population from Cleveland. There was a racetrack where trotting races were held, but also car, cycling or athletics races, and the famous Cleveland Country Club.
Shortly after the 1940s Glenville developed with private equity. New constructions have appeared. Semi-detached houses or independent villas. They quickly transformed this dormitory area into a lively residential area. Once again, investors were not mistaken. The rental income generated by the rental of these houses was very high. History:
