Along the Cuyahoga


First broadcast in 1996 for the Cleveland Bicentennial, this documentary looks back on the earliest days of Cleveland and life along the Cuyahoga River. For a period of 10 years, the Cuyahoga River was the Northwest boundary of the United States, with the land east of the river US territory and the land west of the Cuyahoga home to Native Americans. This program examines the lives and relationships among the early settlers of Cleveland like Lorenzo Carterand Hannah Huntington, to the Native Americans of the Cuyahoga River Valley like Stigwanishand O’Mic.
