Historic Cleveland

Cleveland, Ohio, was founded in 1796 as a small trading post near the Cuyahoga River. Over time, it grew into a major industrial city due to its location on Lake Erie and the Ohio and Erie Canal. The city's architecture reflects its history, with a mix of 19th and early 20th century buildings in styles such as Gothic Revival, Beaux-Arts, and Art Deco.

One notable aspect of Cleveland's architecture is its use of slate roofs. Slate was abundant in the surrounding area and was used extensively in the city's buildings, from homes to commercial buildings to public structures. The use of slate roofs in Cleveland peaked in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, and many of these roofs remain today, adding to the city's historic character.

In the mid-20th century, Cleveland's economy shifted away from heavy industry and the city experienced population decline and urban decay. However, in recent years, efforts have been made to revitalize the city, including preservation and restoration of its historic buildings and slate roofs.
