A little history about the Van Sweringens: VAN SWERINGEN, ORIS PAXTON24 Apr. 1936 andMANTIS JAMES8 July 1881-12 Dec. 1935, real-estate developers ofSHAKER HTS. SHAKER SQUARE, theSHAKER RAPID, and the Terminal Tower complex, were born near Wooster, Ohio to Jas. And Jennie Curtis Van Sweringen. About 1890 the family moved to Cleveland, and by 1897 both brothers were working for Bradley Fertilizer Co. Needing transportation between the suburb and downtown, in 1909 they began acquiring property alongKINGSBURY RUNto build their own line. The New York Central’s Nickel Plate owned lands the brothers needed, so in 1916 they bought the railroad. Railroad empire and also had holdings in Midland Steel, Goodyear Tire & Rubber, andWHITE MOTOR. On 1920 they began operating Shaker Rapid. To provide a new central rail terminal downtown, the Van Sweringens won government and voter approval for a massive development nearPUBLIC SQUARE; construction began in 1923, and the Terminal Tower officially opened on 28 June 1930. In 1926 the brothers received the Cleveland Chamber of Commerce’s Medal for Public Service. The brothers’ finances were dependent upon stock values, and after the stock market crash in 1929, they could not cover their debts. The Van Sweringens were very private men. Neither married, and they avoided Cleveland society, living at theirHUNTING VALLEYestate, DAISY HILL. According to one legend, a wife of one of the eight immortals who was greedy and craved riches, stole the elixir of immortality and drank it. As punishment, she was turned into a toad with the tail of a tadpole instead of two hind legs and banished to the moon. In another version of the story, her incensed husband shot her with an arrow, causing her to lose a leg. In a related legend, one of the immortals lured the toad out of hiding with gold coins, knowing its fondness for wealth. Furthermore, frogs and toads are found around water, and in feng shui, water is symbolic of wealth.
