Public Square: “...A Vision of a City with a Soul”

What was running through Moses Cleaveland’s mind when he landed on the eastern shore of Lake Erie? Did he realize that the forest on the bluff above him would become the city that would bear his name? And how did “Cleaveland” lose an “a”? We can’t tell you what Moses was thinking, but we do weigh in on the missing vowel in this prowl, which will escort you around Public Square, the heart of the city and one of the first areas that Cleaveland laid out as part of his 1796 survey to establish the city. You will hear how the village based on a New England town transformed into a tony residential neighborhood and then was surrounded by large civic buildings. This prowl is about 37 minutes and was recorded in Summer 2008.


Meetup: In Public Square’s Northwest quadrant, on a park bench closest to the West Roadway St. side.
