100 Years in 100 Days: Clark's Shakertown Restaurant on Van Aken Boulevard
100 photos 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.
When researching photos for this series, Patch comes across beautiful images like this postcard of Clark's Shakertown on Van Aken Boulevard. But research turns up very little information.
That's why we're asking you to tell us about Clark's Shakertown at 2782 Van Aken Boulevard. According to the caption, the restaurant was one of 14 Clark's located in Cleveland, Akron and Erie. The original restaurant opened in 1896 on the former Bond Street in downtown Cleveland, according to the website Teaching and Learning Cleveland
