Along the southern banks of Lake Erie, Cleveland, Ohio is the state’s second largest city and one of the Midwest’s most important commercial centers. Cleveland is named after Connecticut born and Yale educated General Moses Cleaveland. As the leader of a surveying party for the Connecticut Land Company, Cleaveland and a group of 50 men set out west in 1796 to claim land in Ohio. After briefly being stopped by Mohawk warriors who were bought off with $1,200 worth of goods, Cleaveland’s party traveled along Lake Erie’s coast before landing at the Cuyahoga River. Here, Cleaveland liked the forested plain and the access to the river and lake. Historians report the name of the city became Cleveland because the map drawn up by the land company misspelled the General’s name. Cleaveland dutifully returned to Connecticut and never set foot in his namesake city again. Early settlement was slow with only about 150 residents by 1820. That all changed with the opening of the Erie Canal in 1825. As Cleaveland imagined, the city’s location led to its becoming a key focal point for transportation in the Great Lakes region. Trains from the east and south converged with shipping on the Great Lakes. The canal made it possible to ship goods all the way from Ohio to the eastern seaboard. Not surprisingly, Cleveland grew rapidly in the second half of the 1800’s. John D. Rockefeller’s Standard Oil Company opened in the city in 1870 followed by more industrialization. In 1920, Cleveland was the fifth largest city in the United States. To help mitigate the consequences of the Great Depression, Cleveland hosted the Great Lakes Exposition (World Fair) in 1936 and 1937. The exposition included a carnival midway, an aquacade for water shows, an international exhibit called “Streets of the World” and industrial and business displays. The event drew more than seven million visitors. After World War II many residents moved to the growing suburbs outside of the city. Today, Cleveland is a bustling metropolis with the typical big city amenities.
A Cleveland tutor can guarantee that you will stay ahead of the curve in your most demanding academic subjects so you can escape from the books to enjoy the many exciting things to do in the big city. Occupying land once used for the 1936 Great Lakes Exposition, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame opened its doors on the shore of Lake Erie in 1995. First gaining popularity in the 1950’s, even more than jazz, rock and roll is considered quintessentially American music. Designed by renowned Chinese-American architect I.M. Pei, the hall of fame building contains seven levels with the main gallery on the first level. Named after hall of fame founder Ahmet Ertegun, the main gallery features sections about the roots of the music and, of course, special exhibits about the heroes of rock and roll such as The Beatles, Elvis Presley and Jimi Hendrix.
Right next door to the hall of fame is the Great Lakes Science Center, opened in 1996. The center offers a wide variety of information and exhibits about science, technology, engineering and math. A major highlight of the center is the fully restored 1925 William G. Mather Steamship, a 618-foot Great Lakes freighter. The steamship has several interactive exhibits about early transportation on the lakes. Fast forward to the future at the NASA Glenn Visitor Center, named after astronaut and Ohio Senator John Glenn. The Glenn Center also features interactive exhibits in the “Living in Space Gallery” and the “Explore Gallery.”
Cleveland is home to a full slate of professional sports teams. Currently the most popular of those teams is the Cleveland Cavaliers who brought the NBA World Championship to the city in 2016 behind LeBron James. They play at Quicken Loans Arena. The NFL’s Browns play at First Energy Stadium just south of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and the Great Lakes Science Center. Cleveland is also home to Major League Baseball’s Indians who have played in the American League since 1901.
