Hessler Road is located in the University Circle neighborhood of Cleveland, Ohio. It is a small one-way brick paved street running east from Ford Drive to Hessler Court. Hessler Court, the only remaining wood block street in Cleveland, runs north from Hessler Road to Bellflower Road. Hessler Court has been listed in the National Register of Historic Places. The dwellings on Hessler Road were built between 1907 and 1927. Because of its unique and unusual architectural and neighborhood characteristics, the street has been declared a historic district by the Cleveland Landmark Commission.
