Cleveland, 0. City and port of entry and c. h.
Cuyahoga co. On Lake Erie, at the mouth of
Cuyahoga Eiver. It derives its name from Gen-
eral Moses Cleveland, an agent of the Connecti-
cut land company, who accompanied the first
surveying party to the Connecticut Eeserve, and
under whose direction the town was first surveyed
in 1796. The Indian title to the land it occupies
had been extinguished two years before; but on
the opposite side of the Cuyahoga Eiver the In-
dians retained their title till 1805. Cleveland
was incorporated as a village in 1814, and as a
city in 1836. Population in 1799, one family; in |
about 500; in 1830, 1000; in 1840, 6071;
in 1850, 17,054. It is 130 miles N. W. from
146 N. E. from Columbus, 200 S. W.
from Buffalo,
130 E. from Detroit.

It is situated on a gravelly plain, elevated
about 80 feet above the lake, of which it has a
commanding prospect. The streets, which cross
each other at right angles, are 80 feet wide, and
Main Street 120. The location is dry and healthy,
and there are many fine buildings. Near the
centre is a public square of 10 acres, neatly
enclosed and shaded with trees.

The harbor at the mouth of the Cuyahoga,
since its improvement, by piers on each side ex-
tending into the water, is one of the best on Lake
Erie, and its position at the northern terminus of
the Ohio Canal, and the fertile country and en-
terprising population by which it is surrounded,
have given it a very rapid growth, which as yet
is but just commencing.

It is already the second commercial town in
Ohio, and bids fair even to rival Cincinnati. Be-
sides its intercourse with the interior of the state
by the Ohio Canal, and its extensive lake com-
merce, it communicates by the Ohio and Penn-
sylvania Canal with Pittsburg, and by the New
York and Welland Canals with the Atlantic
coast. To these facilities for transportation have
lately been added a system of railroads, affording
communication with Cincinnati, Detroit, Pitts-
burg, and Buffalo, and through these two latter
places with Philadelphia, New York, and Bos-
ton. Ohio City, on the opposite side of the Cuy-
ahoga, is a growing suburb. See
Ohio City.
