Hough is a neighborhood situated along the midtown corridor on the east side of Cleveland, Ohio. It is one of the city's oldest neighborhoods; named after Oliver and Eliza Hough who first settled in the area in 1799. During the American Civil Rights era in the mid-20th century, the neighborhood received national attention as a flashpoint of racial tensions, when the Hough Riots broke out. Today it is a neighborhood that has seen an increase of redevelopment, although it remains among the city's poorest neighborhoods.
