Kamm’s Corners, named after the late 19th century settler, Oswald Kamm, has a long and distinguished history as one of Cleveland’s most desirable and vital neighborhoods. Located on the western border of the city, Kamm’s offers a suburban lifestyle combined with easy access to Downtown Cleveland. Kamm’s Corners features a variety of homes from luxurious to affordable, and has great outdoor recreation with municipal parks and the Metroparks Rocky River Reservation.
Of interest is Oswald Kamm’s General Store and Post Office. Built in 1875, the building is now a historically renovated restaurant and anchors a “village feel” in a suburban setting. A feature article in the Cleveland Plain Dealer stated: “The traditional nuclear family – mom, dad, and the kids – dominates this middle-class neighborhood. With the number of single-parent families exploding in big cities and suburbs, Kamm’s Corners is an urban rarity, a place where the percentage of children living with two parents rivals suburban family havens such as Chagrin Falls, North Olmsted, and University Heights. There are more than 4,000 children here, and 80 percent of them live with mom and dad, by far the highest rate of children growing up in two-parent families in Cleveland, the 2000 census found.” Kamm’s Corners is Cleveland’s suburb in the City!
