History <Back>

The recorded history of the area began in 1836, when the General Land Office offered land in the county in exchange for military service. In 1854 Father Peter La Cour, built a church near the present town site.

The community formed after 1878, when Charles Lander Cleveland deeded 63.6 acres of land to the Houston, East and West Texas Railway for the sum of one dollar, with a request that a station bear his name.

Cleveland's official incorporation was in 1935.
