The Home of Rock and Roll

From the very beginning, Cleveland has been at the heart of the history of rock and roll music and culture. The Rock and Roll of Fame, built in 1993, honors the key role played by Cleveland in the history of popular music in its formative years in the 1950s. The Rock and Roll Hall of FamRock Halle has also been designated as a historical landmark by the city and the state because it was here that local deejay Alan Freed coined the famous term.
