Cleveland Starts Here Is:

  • A place for newcomers and travelers to discover the rich history of Cleveland and the region once commonly known as the Western Reserve.
  • A place for Northeast Ohioans to locate their own stories and place themselves in the rich story of Cleveland and Northeast Ohio.
  • A place for schoolchildren to see and experience firsthand the history of Cleveland and the region, and expand upon the lessons learned in the classroom.

Cleveland Starts Here® will be installed at the main entrance to the Cleveland History Center, in the recently renovated 3,500 square foot “Reinberger Gallery,” the starting point for audiences’ exploration of the social, creative, economic, political, and cultural history of Cleveland and Northeast Ohio. Using the latest technologies and techniques available to museum designers, guests will discover how a small wilderness town on the shore of Lake Erie became an industrial giant, the home of immigrants and American presidents, a world-class center for arts, culture, and education, and a world-renowned innovator in medicine and health care.
