Once The Second Tallest Skyscraper In America, Cleveland’s Terminal Tower Was A True Feat Of Engineering

Today, Cleveland’s Terminal Tower has a history that’s deeply intertwined with that of the city. It’s a source of pride for locals and, quite frankly, it should be. The Terminal Tower is the second-tallest building in Ohio but, once upon a time, it was the second-tallest in the world. At 771 feet (or 235 meters), the tower is still impressive to this day… and in its architecture is a hidden story that deserves to be celebrated. After all, its engineers reached new and incredible heights.

While the Terminal Tower may just be the second tallest building in Ohio, locals will never forget when it was the second tallest in the whole world. Heck, it was the tallest building outside of New York for decades after its construction! Truly, this iconic landmark put Cleveland on the map.
