Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

On July 22, 1796, General Moses Cleaveland established the mouth of the Cuyahoga River as the port of entry for the Ohio frontier. He could not have foretold the developments that would turn this hostile marsh into a thriving economic and community center.<P>Cleveland's Harbor chronicles the challenges, struggles, and politics of establishing and maintaining this major port — from General Cleaveland to Mayor Michael White — and the contributions of those whose dedication and ingenuity fostered the port.<P>The Cleveland-Cuyahoga County Port Authority, consisting of appointed civic leaders from various backgrounds, was created a decade after the 1958 opening of the St. Lawrence Seaway to direct the economic development of the lakefront and increase commerce. Today, the Port Authority faces new challenges in its continued commitment to enrich the Cleveland-Cuyahoga County region.
