For such a small community, Cleveland, West Virginia certainly has a lot of local civic pride. That shows in the town's park, which is directly across the road from the defunct store, and behind the mail boxes.
The park has a picnic pavilion and tables, children's playground equipment, and a large green space for recreation. The park is maintained in a very clean and inviting condition with the grass neatly mowed. That's much more than I can say for the parks in many cities.

Sad to say, the United States Post Office in Cleveland, West Virginia closed for good in 1995. It has been replaced by this bank of mail boxes, beside the town's school bus stop, and in front of the Cleveland Community Park. Regretably, once a community loses it's post office it often loses its identity, if not its soul.
Even though Cleveland doesn't have a post office of its own any more, it still has half interest in a zip code: 26215. Cleveland shares it's Zip Code with the nearby town of Rock Cave, West Virginia.
Cleveland, West Virginia is in northernmost Webster County, near the Upshur County line, and is named for Daniel Webster.
One of Webster County's claims to fame is that it's forests produced the largest hardwood tree that was exhibited at the Chicago World's Fair in 1893. The county is also the home of the lovely and secluded Holly River State Park.
