Discover Cleveland’s Historic Downtown

Cleveland’s gorgeous, quaint downtown lets you experience what’s best in a southern town. Beautiful Victorian-era homes mingle with antebellum churches to create an atmosphere that’s the utmost in southern hospitality! We are fortunate to have more than 20 listings on the National Register of Historic Places. Many of them are in our historic downtown area and are included in the self-guided walking tour. Plan a fun weekend and explore them all! Take plenty of photos and share them using #VisitClevelandYall!

A downtown walking tour allows you to personally experience Cleveland’s unique history. Among the historic sites along the tour are Regions Bank, the oldest continuously operating bank building in Tennessee; Craigmiles Hall, built in 1878 as an Opera House and Meeting Hall; The Old Woolen Mill, built in 1890 so that raw wool could be brought in from local farms, processed into cloth, and then cut and sewn into fine garments to be sold worldwide. Now home to commercial shops, loft apartments, an event rental facility that takes its clientele back to where it all began: the Weaver’s Room; ArtHouse Project Incubator; and St. Luke’s Episcopal Church, a Gothic Revival structure rich in local folklore.

A copy of the self-guided tour brochure is available at the Chamber of Commerce offices at 225 Keith Street, 423-472-6587, and at the Museum Center at 5ive Points, 200 Inman Street, 339-5745, where the tour begins. A downloadable version is also available in our website.
