Life in the cityCleveland developed quickly from the year 1832 onwards, when the work on the Ohio and Erie Canal was completed. When the (The American Traveler) was published in 1837, the Rev. Edward Jones noted that there were a multitude of Welsh people there and by 1872 about 400 were living in the city according to Iorthryn Gwynedd. We can assume that the iron mills, the oil works and the factories drew them to the city.
Two Welsh churches were established in Cleveland during the 1870s.
