: This photograph is an aerial image of University Circle, an area in Cleveland, Ohio, that is noted for its world-class cultural, educational and medical institutions. A caption near the bottom of the image identifies a cluster of tall buildings in the center as "The University Hospitals of Cleveland." Cars are visible on the tree-lined streets. Most of the buildings have an institutional design, but some of the smaller buildings may be residences.
Development of University Circle began in the 19th century, when Case Institute of Technology and Western Reserve University chose an area located a few miles east of downtown Cleveland. The area's development continued to grow, as increasing numbers of educational and cultural institutions located there. Founded in 1866, University Hospitals relocated to University Circle in 1931. The Cleveland Clinic, founded in 1921, also is located in the area.
Buildings in the Circle include: Cleveland Orchestra's Severance Hall, Case Western Reserve University, Cleveland Museum of Art, Lakeview Cemetery, and the University/Case Medical Center. View on Ohio Memory.
