A pre-Civil War settlement that was nearly given up for dead after the freeways carved it up in the 1950s and 1960s, Tremont has become the hottest place for redevelopment and renewal in Cleveland. However, its scale, intact charm, location on the bluff overlooking Downtown, and its prominence on the Towpath Trail and Ohio & Erie Canalway National Heritage Area have all assisted in a cultural and economic resurgence.
Characters you may meet along the tour: Samuel Ames and Thirza Pelton
