Welcome to Kinsman
Annexed to Cleveland in 1873, Kinsman became the site of numerous factories associated with the metal industry. During this time modest homes were built primarily due to the expansion of street car lines and the increase in the need for a manufacturing workforce. In the decades following World War II, housing deterioration and the development of outlying neighborhoods free of industrial intrusions acted to drain population from the Kinsman area. Currently Kinsman is in the midst of a wave of investment that will bring $100 million into the neighborhood for a school, community recreation center and a library. With recent new housing constructed, Kinsman is experiencing growth.
