Cleveland is a city in the U.S. state of Ohio and is the county seat of Cuyahoga County, the most populous county in the state. The city is located in northeastern Ohio on the southern shore of Lake Erie, approximately 97 km west of the Pennsylvania border. It was founded in 1796 near the mouth of the Cuyahoga River, and became a manufacturing center owing to its location on the lake shore, as well as being connected to numerous canals and railroad lines. Cleveland's economy has diversified sectors that include manufacturing, financial services, healthcare, and biomedical. Cleveland is home to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Residents of Cleveland are called "Clevelanders". Nicknames for the city include "The Forest City", "Metropolis of the Western Reserve", "Sixth City", "The Rock 'n' Roll Capital of the World", and "C-Town". Due to Lake Erie's proximity to the city, the Cleveland area is sometimes locally referred to as "The North Coast".

The Fountain of Eternal Life, also known as the War Memorial Fountain and Peace Arising from the Flames of War, is a statue and fountain in Cleveland, Ohio designed by Cleveland Institute of Art graduate[1] Marshall Fredericks and dedicated on May 30, 1964. The sculpture, which serves as the city's major memorial to its citizens that served in World War II, is situated on Memorial Plaza, which is part of the Cleveland Mall.

The fountain was initiated and promoted by the Cleveland Press, which raised $250,000 in donations from private citizens and various organizations for the project. The centerpiece is a 10.7 m bronze figure representing man escaping from the flames of war and reaching skyward for eternal peace. The bronze sphere from which the figure rises represents the earth. Four granite carvings, representing the geographic civilizations of the world, are placed around the sphere. On the surface of the polished granite rim surrounding the fountain are bronze plates bearing the names of 4,177 Greater Clevelanders who perished in WWII and in the Korean War. Following a complete restoration during the construction of an underlying parking garage in connection with the neighboring Key Tower, the memorial was rededicated on Veterans Day in 1991.

This is the last mug I need to complete the us city mug collection. Anybody have one?

I am not sure if they are still making the Cleveland mug. We were in Cleveland last April and we had to go to at least 10 stores but none of them have the mugs. All they carried were Ohio mugs. I had to buy mine for 40 bucks on ebay. I guess they told me that there was something wrong with the design... I hope this helps and I know it's not entirely good news.

Any update on Cleveland? Are they still producing these?

argicgr   23 Nov 2012

Cleveland and Sacramento are not included with their SKUs in official catalogues

humbear   23 Nov 2012

What exactly does that mean, argicgr? That they don't sell them anymore? Also, what catalogues are you referring to?

argicgr   23 Nov 2012

Yes.. Someone at FB posted a pic from a catalogue from a SBUX store (used in order to place orders for mugs with relevant SKUs) where these mugs did not exist!!! I belive though that US members should confirm or not the above.....
