Kirtland History

The area of present day Kirtland, was originally surveyed by Moses Cleaveland and his team in 1796. It was named in honor of Turhand Kirtland who played an important role in the Revolutionary War. Not only was he important in the Connecticut Land Company, but he also displayed great fairness in his dealings with the Native Americans. Kirtland was settled much later than its surrounding townships, because of its clay soiled and hilly land, which was unsuitable for agriculture. European settlers arrived around 1811.
