The city of Cleveland was founded on July 22, 1796, by the very general who surveyed the land for the Connecticut Land Company – General Moses Cleaveland. His job was to survey land that sat on the southern coast of Lake Erie and the mouth of what would eventually be known as the Cuyahoga River. From that point forward, the city was known as “Cleveland.” But, Moses’ name is spelled “C-L-E-A-V-E-L-A-N-D,” so, what happened to that first “A,” and why doesn’t the city use it in its current spelling?
