Five minutes from downtown Cleveland, and located on a high bluff with spectacular views of the city and ridges over the Cuyahoga River, the historic Tremont neighborhood has been home to Civil War encampments, Cleveland's first university and public art gallery, a "millionaire's row" of 19th century mansions and streets of humble worker's cottages, numerous historic churches and ethnic social halls, and today's diverse mix of artists, families, downtown urbanites and working folks. A "small town in a big city," trendy shops, galleries and restaurants can be found along Professor Street and around Lincoln Park, the historic neighborhood center.
