View of City Hall from Superior Street

Cleveland's City Hall stands at 601 Lakeside Avenue but this was not always its current location. In fact, Cleveland did not originally have its own building dedicated specifically to civil affairs. The desire to build along the lake was part of a huge undertaking for the city, spearheaded by progressive Mayor Tom Johnson. Its construction was also associated with the City Beautiful Movement and still stands as a landmark for The Cleveland Group Plan.
