City of Cleveland Ohio

Cleveland is the second largest city in the U.S. state of Ohio (pop. 500,000) and is the county seat of Cuyahoga County, the most populous county in the state. The city is located in northeastern Ohio on the southern shore of Lake Erie, approximately 60 miles west of the Pennsylvania border. It was founded in 1796 near the mouth of the Cuyahoga River, and became a manufacturing center owing to its location on the lake shore, as well as being connected to numerous canals and railroad lines. Like many of America's older industrial American cities, Cleveland withstood declining prosperity and loss of population in the second half of the 20th century. Recent re-investment in the downtown area (new stadiums for its sports teams, the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, shopping arcades) has revitalized the city. Cleveland is home to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Cleveland's economy has diversified sectors that include manufacturing, financial services, healthcare, and biomedical.

History of City of Cleveland:

The Village of Cleaveland was incorporated on December 23, 1814. In spite of the nearby swampy lowlands and harsh winters, its waterfront location proved to be an advantage. The area began rapid growth after the 1832 completion of the Ohio and Erie Canal. This key link between the Ohio River and the Great Lakes connected the city to the Atlantic Ocean via the Erie Canal and later via the St. Lawrence Seaway; and the Gulf of Mexico via the Mississippi River. Growth continued with added railroad links. Cleveland incorporated as a city in 1836.

Greater Cleveland has long been famous as a durable goods manufacturing area. Following the national trend, however, Cleveland has been shifting to a more services-based economy.

Chimney Repairs - a High, Dangerous Job

But it can be more serious -- perhaps the flue liner has broken down, risking your familty to fire and carbon monoxide poisoning. In these cases, chimney repair can become a high and dangerous job. Depending on the particulars, our experts may choose to build a scaffold to work from, and may even require a bucket truck (a cherry picker) for some portion of the job.
