One of Cleveland’s oldest and most historic neighborhoods, Tremont’s street names and landmarks evoke its vibrant past. It was first incorporated in 1836 as part of the once booming Ohio City and later annexed in 1867 by Cleveland. In its early days, the area was comprised of mostly Eastern European immigrants who migrated to Tremont after a bridge was constructed to connect it to downtown Cleveland in the late 19th century, resulting in a large migration of residents.
The area’s dense Eastern European population had a great influence on its architecture. Tremont is home to the largest concentration of historic churches of any neighborhood in the nation. Notable churches include the Greek Orthodox Church of the Assumption, St. Augustine Catholic Church and St. Theodosius Russian Orthodox Church.
Lincoln Park resides at the heart of Tremont, and was named during the Civil War when Union troops were brought to the area by President Lincoln. Today it is the site of a public swimming pool and hosts a monthly summer concert series on the second Friday of each month.
Tremont is currently experiencing a cultural revival due to an influx of new residents in the early 2000s, its proximity to downtown, and affordable cost of living. Professor and Kenilworth Avenues boast many art galleries. Popular destinations include Asterisk, Banyan Tree, Brandt Gallery, Atmosphere Gallery and Pavanna Gallery. An evening touring these sites can be topped off by visiting one of the neighborhood’s numerous and eclectic restaurants, such as Fahrenheit, Parallax or Lolita.
