Cleveland, Ohio was established in 1796 and is home to an abundance of American history.
In the early 1900’s Cleveland was the sixth-largest city in the country. Over time Clevelanders have become responsible for several vital inventions, including traffic signals, x-ray machines, and indoor shopping centers. It’s also the first city in the country to have a Black man elected mayor (Carl. B Stokes in 1967). These events and inventions are just a small piece of what makes Cleveland the primary hub of Northeast Ohio.
