Cleveland. City of Cleveland, Ohio

Cleveland is the largest and one of the most important cities of Ohio. It has a population of 396,815 (2010 census). Cleveland lies on the southern shore of Lake Erie.

Cleveland was originally a trading post with a harbor at the mouth of the Cuyahoga River. In 1796, Moses Cleaveland laid out and gave his name to the town. In 1836 it was incorporated as a city. Iron ore was discovered on Lake Superior and as the production of iron and steel developed, Cleveland became a leading Great Lakes port. Today, Cleveland has a vast iron and steel industry and manufactures farming implements and automobile parts. There are also lumber yards, oil refineries and meat packing plants.

Its favorable location on the Cuyahoga River and its vast transport systems have made Cleveland an important distribution center. Cleveland's port mainly distributes iron ore, but other important goods include coal and petroleum. As well as handling overseas goods, the city is served by major railroads and highways that transport goods throughout the Midwest.Cleveland is a spacious and well-planned city. It has many parks, fine civil buildings and an art museum.

In the XXI century, Cleveland has good infrastructure, a quality economy, and has invested in the music and arts.
