Learning About Cleveland’s History Cleveland might be named for Moses Cleaveland, but he never lived here. Lorenzo Carter was the first to settle on the banks of the Cuyahoga in 1797. There's a new college class on Cleveland history, a slick mobile app, and, on the 25th anniversary of its publishing, some high-tech updates for the online Encyclopedia of Cleveland History. Let's stroll down Cleveland's memory lane.
