Ohio City Architecture

Forrest Coburn was a long-time resident of Cleveland's west side. His firm designed a number of houses, churches and commercial buildings that are still standing in Ohio City and the Franklin-West Clinton Historic District. Among them are the four here which were photographed in 2016. The two houses to the left are (top) the Spitzer House at 2830 Franklin Boulevard, designed in 1879, and (bottom) the Sara Bousfield House at 3806 Franklin Boulevard, designed in 1873--today Stone Gables Bed & Breakfast. The two commercial buildings to the right are (top) the Hermann Block at 2526 Market Avenue, designed in 1889--today part of the Great Lakes Brewing Company complex, and the Merrill Block at 1900 West 25th Street, designed in 1893--today occupied by Third Federal Savings and Loan Association.
