History

Originally part of the Warrensville Township, University Heights was incorporated as Idlewood Village in 1908. It adopted its present name in 1935 when John Carroll University moved into the area. John Carroll attracted massive growth and University Heights soon became recognized as a city in 1940. Every summer since 1967 has began with a Memorial Day parade which is the longest-running Memorial Day parade on the east side of Cleveland. Over time the city has become home to multiple parks, a public pool, and several commercial developments.
