The Native American Dwelling Site Found Near Cleveland Is A Historical Wonder

Believe it or not, Greater Cleveland abounds with evidence of early Native American activity. Indigenous tribes are said to have built long-gone mounds right in our now-developed city, but locals tend to be rather unaware of what life in our area was like just a few thousand years ago. Nonetheless, these ancient peoples left evidence of their daily lives right under our feet… perhaps even under where you are right now. You may be surprised to learn that they left evidence of their presence throughout areas that are now parkland, including one spectacular reservation in Sheffield Village.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures!
