NEIGHBORHOOD SPOTLIGHT: TREMONT
Tremont sits just west of the Cuyahoga and southeast of the Ohio City neighborhood. As one of the oldest sections of Cleveland, Tremont has preserved its rich architectural heritage through careful renovations. Artists flocked to the neighborhood in the 1970s and 1980s, opening studios and galleries that now thrive alongside the neighborhood’s nationally recognized food scene. Today, the neighborhood is also the proud home of many boutique shops, upscale and affordable housing, churches, schools, parks, libraries, and coffee shops.
