Did you Know???

  • The city of Cleveland was founded in 1796 by General Moses Cleaveland. Note the spelling: the 'a' in the city name was dropped in 1830. According to legend, the change occurred as a result of a newspaper typo so the name would fit in a headline. Unfortunately for General Moses, it stuck.
  • The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame was founded in Cleveland, Ohio in 1983. To date, more than 700 people have been inducted.
  • Cleveland was the first city to be lit electrically in 1879. It's also the first to use an electric traffic signal, installed on Euclid Avenue and East 105th Street.
  • Life Savers were invented in Cleveland. You can thank businessman Clarence A. Crane, who wanted to solve the ever-troubling problem of candy melting. He used a machine that pharmacists use to make round flat pills, punched a hole in the center of the candy concoction and called it a Life Saver
  • Cleveland inventor Coburn Haskell is credited with inventing the modern golf ball.
