The city was given its name in 1796 when surveyors decided to name it “Cleveland” after Gen. Moses Cleveland, their leader when it was just a small village, later when it was incorporated into a city in 1836 the name was changed to Cleveland. During the early 20th century Cleveland was a major manufacturing center which was the main source of Cleveland careers at the time and was home to many major steel companies and presently defunct auto makers like Baker, Gaeth, Jordan, Peerless, People’s, White and Winton. By 1920 it became the 5th largest city in the U.S. Cleveland’s population peaked during the 1950’s when it had over 900,000 residents. Thereafter there came a trend of people moving out into the suburbs which helped decongest the city, but this was the start of the gradual population decline, due to many different factors, but mostly to the recent decline of the manufacturing sector, which continues today. Also, during the 1960’s and 1970’s the city went into deep financial trouble.
During the 1980’s the city has been working hard to reduce its debts and has been cited as an example of urban revitalization, public-private partnership, and downtown renaissance. Redevelopment has been strongest near the Gateway Complex in the downtown area where sports venues, the Quicken Loans Arena, and Progressive Field have been erected and in an area near North Coast Harbor where the Cleveland Browns Stadium, the Great Lakes Science Center and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame have been constructed. At present, many residential areas and the public school system are still having serious problems but revival efforts are ongoing, including policies made to attract new businesses to the city and help bring in Cleveland job opportunities. The city government is focusing on capitalizing upon the waterfront areas, economic development and the retention of the city’s young professionals. In 1999 the city was considered as one of the emerging global cities in the U.S.
