Moving to Cleveland

Cleveland, the fabulous "the Forest city", located in the northern part of the state of Ohio. A city built to be connected, founded along the banks of the Cayahuga River. The origins of the of the city stretch back to a survey team out monitoring the Connecticut Western Reserve. From this the city received its name in honor of its founder - politician, general and member of the War of Independence Moses Cleaveland. The expedition he led surveyed north-east of Ohio and they founded a settlement at the confluence of the Cuyahoga River into Lake Erie. Over time, the letter "a" slowly disappeared from use to make it the name we know today. The most popular version is that the publisher of the first city newspaper specifically removed the letter for convenience when printing the name. There is also an opinion that the error was made by accident. Nevertheless, the name stuck and the city became known as Cleveland. Currently the city's population currently stands at nearly half a million people placing its 43rd in the list of the largest cities in the United States. However, compared with 1950 the number of residents has almost halved making it a much quieter and more peaceful place to live.   household moving goods

Relocation to Cleveland was once 'the' move to make at the beginning of the last century. The development of railways helped Cleveland to grow into a vast industrial center and become a city of millionaires including the Rockefellers and the Rothschilds. By 1920, Cleveland had become 5th in terms of population in the United States. But this glory was not to last and following the beginning of the Great Depression and the decline of heavy industry the city's development slowed down with fewer people moving to Cleveland and many heading out in search of work.

But like the historic traditions of the region Clevelanders have never given up and today the city is focused on the development of major projects all around the city, with the downtown area already enjoying the benefits of a successful and developed area (along with several other districts). With its new development project Cleveland in now pulling in more people with higher educations than anywhere else and those that come with the intention of starting a new career are finding that a move to Cleveland opens more doors than they expected.

Cleveland is more than just new opportunities though. Having been around for a long time this city is full of history and culture just waiting to be experienced. One place not to be missed is the Cleveland Museum of Natural History. This museum is home to a collection which includes more than 4 million artifacts, including a full-scale model of a stegosaurus - a favorite spectacle for children, as well as the anthropological collection of Hamann-Todd containing more than 3,100 human skeletons and 900 skeletons of primates. The Curator of the museum, paleoanthropologist Donald Johanson, is also known as discoverer of Australopithecus better known as "Lucy" - the first known representative of her human/ape species, which lived an estimated 3.2 million years ago. It was during time at the scientific camp that she gained her now famous name. Throughout the general excitement, there was a song constantly playing - "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds" by the Beatles, and so the name was born.

Actually music is inextricably linked with the history of Cleveland. The city is home to the Cleveland Orchestra - a symphony orchestra founded in 1918. This Orchestra belongs to the top five symphony orchestras of the United States. Fans of rock music will always be able to relate to this city thanks to its most famous attraction, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Music fans who come here instantly feel the excitement and awe born from these famous places and names. "Sounds of the cities (Memphis, Detroit, London, Liverpool and others)," "Songs That Changed the World," "The phenomenon of one-hit wonders", "Roots of Rock 'n' Roll," "Girls who showed everybody" and more stuff like that. In addition they also have an impressive collection of records and rock artifacts, like Slash's hats or the mandolins of R.E.M.

This museum is dedicated to the most famous and influential figures of the rock 'n' roll era: artists, producers and other personalities, who had a significant impact on the music industry.

For anyone who heads to Cleveland a real must see is the decommissioned vessel of the Great Lakes, the steamer 'William G. Mather' which is now a floating Maritime Museum. This ship, built in 1925 is a classic example of a lake cargo ship. It is one of the largest non-marine ships in the world. In the middle of the 20th century about three hundred of these ships were used on the Great Lakes but by the beginning of the 21st century their number was reduced to one hundred and forty. So if you think you have what it takes and the skills to make a real difference then come to Cleveland and make your mark on the world.
