Cleveland Historical is a free app that puts Cleveland history at your fingertips. Developed by the Center for Public History + Digital Humanities at Cleveland State University, Cleveland Historical is a mobile application that provides an interpretive view of the region's history. Find interesting people, places and events in Cleveland history, and take curated historical tours of the city. Each point on the interactive location-enabled map includes historical information about the site along with historic images from Cleveland's top archival institutions. Many sites also include audio clips and short documentary videos based on oral history interviews from CSU's Cleveland Regional Oral History collection (clevelandvoices.org). Cleveland Historical is a collaborative project with stories created by teachers, students, professors, and community members, and curated by the Center for Public History + Digital Humanities. Visit the website at clevelandhistorical.org.
If you see a historical site or topic that is not covered in your area of the city, check back often. We add new material on a monthly basis. If you would like to suggest a site or become involved in developing digital stories, reviewing content, or collecting regional history please contact us via email at firstname.lastname@example.org, on Twitter at @clehistorical, on Facebook, Instagram, or on the web at clevelandhistorical.org.

Ratings and Reviews
I absolutely love this app. It's like carrying around a Cleveland tour guide with you wherever you go.
There are tons of POI's with new ones being added fairly regularly. Plus, it's quite a user friendly little app. The only thing I would ask for is support for landscape mode, which would make viewing some photos and videos a bit more enjoyable.
All in all, a fantastic app that I hope all lovers of the CLE will use and support. Keep up the great work CSU!!!
I use this all the time!
This is absolutely wonderful and I still use this all the time even though I originally downloaded this a while ago. I'm so glad that someone took the time to compile all of this in such an easy to use format!
Illuminating the history of Cleveland!
Splendid app for immersing yourself in the history of our fair city; would be great for visitors as well.
Interface is well designed and content includes text, photos, and audio, and videos!
