100 Years in 100 Days: Caminati's at Shaker Square
100 photographs that define Shaker Heights
Shaker Heights Patch is celebrating the 100 years of Shaker Heights history by creating an online scrapbook. Each day for 100 days, we'll feature a photograph that helps tell the story of Shaker Heights.
Today's photo features Caminati's Restaurant, which was located at 2775 S. Moreland Blvd. on Shaker Square.
Shaker Square was conceived in 1923, as part of a development project that fell through. The Van Sweringen brothers took over the project and turned the square to an octagon to facilitate parking. The square served as another amenity for the well-off residents Shaker.
In 1976, the Square was listed on the National Register of Historic Places as the oldest shopping district in Ohio, and the second oldest district in the nation.
