AsiaTown Cleveland is unique in its character. Smokestacks rise behind indoor shopping area carved out of old factories. Steeples rise above shops selling wares from the East. Galleries and live-work lofts coexist on tree-lined streets with modest homes. Unparalleled views of downtown enchant the visitor at every turn.

Ohio City—or the “City of Ohio” as it was known at its 1818 founding—was originally a part of Brooklyn Township. On March 3, 1836, just two days before Cleveland’s incorporation, the City of Ohio became an independent municipality. It remained so until June 5, 1854, when it was annexed to the city of Cleveland.
