Named for the streetcar turnaround once located at Euclid Avenue and East 107th Street, University Circle is a 600-acre district that is home to many of Cleveland's major cultural, educational, medical, and service institutions. The area was first settled in 1799 by tavernkeeper Nathaniel Doan and became known as Doan's Corners. In 1882, Western Reserve College moved here from Hudson, followed in 1885 by the Case School of Applied Science from downtown Cleveland. These two colleges federated in 1967 to become Case Western Reserve University.

In 1882, Jeptha Wade, founder of early telecommunications giant Western Union, donated the large tract of land that became Wade Park. In 1916, in accordance with the terms of Wade's gift, The Cleveland Museum of Art opened in the park. Over the years many other institutions, as well as their benefactors, have made their homes here. In 1931, The Cleveland Orchestra found a permanent home in Severance Hall and University Hospitals of Cleveland was dedicated, firmly establishing University Circle as a premier urban district. The Circle is unique for its concentration of diverse organizations.
