Cleveland Downtown Historic Walking Tour
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; The Spot, a unique restaurant built prior to 1900; 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 Convention & Visitors Bureau at 225 Keith Street, 423-472-6587, and at the Museum Center at 5ive Points, 200 Inman Street, 339-5745, where the tour begins.
The Cherokee Chieftain, carved from a tree along Parker Street by widely-acclaimed sculptor Peter Wolf Toth, was presented to the city of Cleveland, Tennessee as a gift in 1974. The Chieftain is the focal point of downtown Cleveland and stands as a proud reminder of the region's significant Cherokee Indian heritage. The Chieftain may be seen on the grounds of the Museum Center at 5ive Points on Inman Street.
In the spring of 2003 Mainstreet Cleveland, composed of city/county officials, volunteers and business people, focused on the goal of making downtown Cleveland a more vibrant place to work, live, shop and entertain.
Mainstreet Cleveland is a membership based organization, whose purpose is to promote and improve Cleveland's Historic Downtown. Mainstreet coordinates the Summer Cruise-In, Halloween Block Party, Carols in the City, Christmas Parade and many more events every year in Downtown Cleveland.
