Maple Hollow Country Club

Maple Hollow Country Club was a site for organizations’ picnics. It was organized in the 1920s by a syndicate of prominent Black Clevelanders and was located on or near Route 422 in Parkman. The Great Depression stalled plans to develop it into Northeast Ohio’s answer to Michigan’s Idlewild, one of the nation’s preeminent African American summer resort communities, and a real estate venture to sell lots made little headway.
