Settler's Landing

Stand at Settler's Landing today and you will find an RTA rapid station and a view of Cleveland's Flats District. In 1796, however, this was the landing site of Moses Cleaveland and his surveying team from the Connecticut Land Company. The Cuyahoga River, Iroquois for "crooked river," provided a safe harbor for ships traveling on Lake Erie, making this an attractive place to build a city.
