Welcome to Mt. Pleasant

Mt. Pleasant was first settled in 1826 and remained a rural area primarily consisting of farmland for 80 years. Between 1920 and 1940, Mt. Pleasant more then tripled in population (from 14,082 to 42,626) due in part to the continuation of European immigrants moving east from the densely-developed Cleveland as well as the establishment of an institutional and commercial center of a growing Jewish community along, Kinsman Avenue and surrounding area. East Boulevard (now Martin Luther King Drive) was the site of many stately homes, many of which remain today. Mt. Pleasant is known for having the largest urban park in the state. Luke Easter Park consists of 114 acres of land available to its residents for family-oriented recreational pursuits.
