Cleveland, GA Colleges
Cleveland is a city in White County, Georgia, United States. The population was 3,410 at the 2010 census (up from 1,907 at the 2000 census). The city is the county seat of White County.
It is named after General Benjamin Cleveland, a War of 1812 figure and grandson of Colonel Benjamin Cleveland, a Revolutionary War figure. It is also home to a large manufacturing location of Freudenberg-NOK General Partnership.
The town is home to two Jewish camps, Camp Barney Medintz and URJ Camp Coleman, which are essentially back-to-back.
Cleveland is best known for its Babyland General Hospital where the Cabbage Patch Kids dolls, the conception of native Xavier Roberts, are created. But most travelers pass through the congested town square on their way to other destinations just a few miles away, such as the Bavarian-themed town of Helen, Unicoi State Park, the Smithgall Woods-Dukes Creek Conservation Area, and the Chattahoochee National Forest, including Anna Ruby Falls.
Since 2009, Cleveland has been represented in the Georgia House of Representatives by a Republican member, Rick Austin.
