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.[2] During the Civil Rights Movement, the neighborhood received national attention as a flashpoint of racial tensions, when the Hough Riots occurred. Today it is a neighborhood that has seen an increase of redevelopment, although it remains among the city's poorest neighborhoods.[3] Hough is also the location of League Park, the ballpark best known as the original home of the Cleveland Indians from 1901 to 1946. The site still has a baseball field on the original site and parts of the ballpark structure built in 1910, all restored in 2014.[4]

Hough is part of the city's 7th Ward, and is represented by Councilman T. J. Dow.[5]
