Cleveland History

The city of Cleveland was named after the cotton broker, W.D. Cleveland who donated 63 acres to the Houston East & West Texas Railway for the construction of a stop. In return, he wanted the settlement named after him. Cleveland presently occupies the area where the Union Pacific line meets the Burlington Northern Santa Fe line. The community was once a prominent lumber shipping center. It is interesting to note that the citizens of Cleveland did not pay taxes until 1947. In recent years, the city has adopted a council-manager structure of government.
