12 Photos That Show How Much Cleveland Has Changed… And How Much It Hasn’t
Cleveland has changed remarkably over the past two centuries. Its bustling streets were once quaint, as many families did not even consider settling in the region until after the dissolution of the Connecticut Western Reserve and the conclusion of the War of 1812. Its oldest buildings provide a striking contrast to its gargantuan skyscrapers, and such a diversity is reflected in the city’s population. Our history is as diverse as, well, us, and you might be surprised to see how the city has changed over the years… and in what ways it has stayed exactly the same.
Cleveland’s evolution over the years has been remarkable to witness. The city is now home to a bustling art scene and fine dining opportunities everywhere you turn. It has come a long way since its founding in 1796, and we couldn’t have a better hometown.
