In 1796 the site was surveyed for the Connecticut Land Company by Moses Cleaveland, after whom the resulting settlement was named (the a was dropped in 1832 to fit a newspaper masthead). With the completion of the Ohio Canal in 1832, linking Cleveland with the Ohio River, the community became a key link in trade between the Ohio Valley and eastern markets served by the Erie Canal.
