The Fairfax neighborhood on the east side of Cleveland is home to a variety of famed Northeast Ohio institutions, not the least of which is Kamaru House, established in 1917 as the first interracial theater and/or arts center. Its “new” neighbor, the Cleveland Clinic, set up shop in 1920. Fairfax Renaissance Development Corp. aids the community through a variety of programs and initiatives. Recently, the organization has helped foster intergenerational housing for grandparents raising their grandchildren. The Buckeye neighborhood has great access to the Red Line, Larchmere/Shaker Square and University Circle. Buckeye-Shaker Square Development Corp. works to improve the area.
