Cleveland Historical mobile phone app offers a 21st-century look at Northeast Ohio's history

The launch of Cleveland Historical, a free mobile walking tour app for Android and iPhone users and the first of its kind for Cleveland, brings the city's history right to users' fingertips. The National Council on Public History recently recognized the project as one of the best in the world.

Android and iPhone users can explore Northeast Ohio's history, whether it's through notable names or off-the-beaten-path places that helped shape the region. Layered, map-based, multimedia presentations bring history to life, and links to popular social media sites such as Facebook and Twitter encourage users to share their experience with the world in an easy, fun-to-use format.

Together with the Cleveland Historical website, users can search more than 150 stories by subject or tag, or browse through a comprehensive map of historic locations. Themed walking tours guide users through the photos, video and audio that accompany the sites. From the sacred landmarks that dot the region to the Cultural Gardens that are thought to be the world's first peace garden, some of the most significant and extraordinary buildings and places can be found in one of 11 themes.

To download Cleveland Historical, go to your Android or iPhone app store, or click HERE.
