The City of Cleveland was built for the Detroit & Cleveland Steam Navigation Company, and was one of the handsomest as well as the fastest steamboat on the Great Lakes, when she appeared. Her maximum speed was 19 miles per hour. Her engine was taken from the Lake Champlain steamer UNITED STATES, and the cabins came from the ADIRONDACK also of Lake Champlain. She was used on the route from Detroit to Hancock, on Lake Superior, for two seasons, and was afterwards placed on the line from Detroit to Alpena, having had her name changed to CITY OF ALPENA. In 1893 a new line was inaugurated between Cleveland and Buffalo, and, as the STATE OF OHIO, she ran on this route under the management of the Cleveland & Buffalo Transit Co.
