Cleveland is located in the southeastern part of the state of Tennessee and a city and seat of Bradley County and is about 30 miles going northeast of Chattanooga. An agreement was established in order for the Cherokee inhabiting the area to evacuate in 1836, and the area was then named after Colonel Benjamin Cleveland, who was a heron during the American Revolution. Cleveland’s economy was primarily based on agriculture, mainly in livestock, and industry. The manufacturer includes paper, furniture, textile, clothing, gas and electric ranges, and snack food. The city is home to the headquarters of CherokeeNational Forest, which extends along the length of the state’s border and has been divided into two sections by the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. The Red Clay Historical Park is the last of the Cherokee councils before they were removed from the Trail of Tears in the south of the city.
