Old North Royalton, Ohio is oddly developed. There are few truly old buildings and no really old commercial buildings at all. Low commercial structures, apparently put up in the ’60s and ’70s, are uninspired and even ugly but they serve their purpose. The haphazard placement of businesses leads to odd situations where buildings sit behind other buildings; entrances to stores can be on sides or at the rear with no street exposure at all. Occupants do what they can to inform customers of their locations and how to reach them. Looking around, the oddities can be interesting.
