Cleveland is located on the southern shores of Lake Erie. Founded in 1796, near the mouth of the Cuyahoga River, Cleveland 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. Landmarks dating to its days as a turn-of-the-20th-century manufacturing center include the Steamship William G. Mather, now part of the Great Lakes Science Center. It's also known for the stately Cleveland Museum of Art, the Cleveland Orchestra, the I.M. Pei–designed Rock & Roll Hall of Fame & Museum and the Cleveland Clinic.
Located in Downtown Cleveland within the former Eaton Corporation headquarters building, the Diversified Search Cleveland office is within walking distance of Public Square, the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, Jacobs Field (home of the Cleveland Indians), Quicken Loans Arena (home of the CAVS), and the Cleveland Browns football stadium. Within a one-mile radius are major hotels, restaurants, First Merit Convention Center, and Playhouse Square. Access to the building can be found on either the Superior Avenue or E. 12th Street sides.
