Lost Cleveland is an engrossing excursion into the city's rarefied architectural air during its heyday as the sixth-largest city in the country. Author Michael DeAloia recounts the histories of seven culturally significant and iconic architectural gems that defined Cleveland's position of wealth and importance during the industrial age. Inspired by noble visions of Cleveland's most elite residents, these structures reflect the vigor and imagination that suffused city leaders. From Severance Hall, still home to the Cleveland Orchestra and the only structure in this collection that remains standing, to "Andrew's Folly," the grandest house built on legendary Millionaire's Row, Lost Cleveland provides a revealing historical retrospective on the growth, development and ultimate decline of the North Coast's greatest city.

Michael DeAloia tells everyone he talks to "that the best things in my life, both professionally and personally, have happened in Cleveland." Michael is a nationally recognized blogger through his "Tech Czar Notes" and "Cool History of Cleveland" blogs. He has spoken at numerous national economic development, technology and social media events and has appeared on Fox News channel's John Stossel Show and was included in the Drew Carey supported Reason Foundation documentary on Cleveland titled Reason Saves Cleveland. In addition to Lost Cleveland: Wonders of the Sixth City, he has published two books of poetry: Roses on the Gates of Hell and Forever Mantras. He is perhaps best known for his term at the City of Cleveland as the senior executive for technology development, or "Tech Czar," where he was responsible for the economic development of the technology industries in the city.
