Happy Birthday to Us!

Celebrating the First Year of Cleveland Area History

Note: This post is a bit late - the first post here was, in fact, on October 31, 2009 - but I've been rather busy of late, with the birth of our second child.

In the past year, Cleveland Area History has grown into a movement with significant following. As of a couple of weeks ago, we had a daily readership of 400-500 and more than 2600 followers on Facebook. We've shared more than 180 posts detailing various bits of our local history.

In the upcoming year, we will branch out, with new writers, and will address more than just the built environment. Is there a subject relating to local history that you'd like to write about? Let me know.

Further, we will take paths to harness the energy that Cleveland Area History has generated, so that we can advocate for and preserve the history of this area.

What has been your favorite story from the past year? Why?


  1. Definitely enjoyed the compilation of Top Landmarks associated with the NEO area!

    Keep up the good work and congrats on the new addition to the family!

  2. Happy both the blog and the new baby!
    Since I've found this site, I have especially enjoyed the Condemned Cleveland posts. While it is sad to see the houses in disrepair, these are truly the houses that need their stories told because we are so close to losing their history forver...

  3. Happy birthday - thanks for being here!
