Cleveland, TN has a proud heritage going back more than 160 years. It’s a fun place to visit and a great place to live. With so much to do and enjoy, everyone feels at home in Downtown Cleveland.

An accredited Tennessee Main Street Community since 1990, downtown Cleveland has more to offer - more activities, more shops, more homes, more offices and more life.

MainStreet Cleveland is composed of dedicated citizens, business owners, government officials and other friends who recognize the important role a vital downtown plays in preserving and furthering our community's identity, spirit and economy.

The Back Alley Gallery
Visit the Back Alley Gallery and view the public art display by local artists. The main location of Back Alley Gallery is in alley behind Craigmiles Hall, a half block east of Ocoee Street across from the Courthouse. A second location is on Broad Street just south of Gardner's Market.

The Back Alley Gallery has transformed these unused alley spaces with art, lights, and plants. Doorways mounted on the walls in the alley frame selected works of art. The doors will open to reveal works of art hidden within the frame.

Check it out today and open the door to Art! Funding for this project was by the Lyndhurst Foundation.
