Founded by Moses Cleaveland in 1796, the City of Cleveland grew up at the confluence of canals and railroad routes. It has impressive turn of the century architecture, lake fronted parks and gardens. The Warehouse District is listed in the National Register of Historic Places.
The first to settle
The first man to settle in Cleveland was Lorenzo Carter who built his house on the banks of the Cuyahoga River. This was after Moses Cleaveland, who established the settlement, oversaw the plan for the modern downtown area.
Summer or winter, the weather in Cleveland is always moderated by a breeze from Lake Erie.
When Cleaveland became Cleveland
When Cleveland was founded in 1796 the original name for the city was spelled Cleaveland. It changed when the local newspaper had to shorten its masthead by one letter, so they left out the 'a'.
