Before the 1850s, Cleveland was surrounded by independent rural settlements. Despite the relatively dense population, residents walked to work, shop, and attend school. However, the city reached its population limit, and new transportation technologies encouraged the first suburbias. In 1859, EAST CLEVELAND RAILWAY began construction of a horse-drawn streetcar line, and other companies followed suit in the 1860s and '70s. By the mid-1900s, many urbanites were moving to these rural retreats.
