Amusment Park owner

Mr. Humphrey owned and operated the Euclid Beach Park. He opened a popcorn stand at the beach while it was owned by it's orginal owners. After a couple of years, he decided to close his stand. While on a business trip to Chicago, he learned that Euclid Beach Park had gone into bankrupty, he returned to Cleveland and offered the bankers a deal. Let him rent the property. Mr. Humphrey did not charge admission to the park and got the streetcar company to charge a "one fare, free gate, no beer". By the end of the parks first season, the Humphrey's owned a majority of the stock for the business.

Through the years, different attractions were added that drew people into the park.

The park closed in 1969.
