Abstract: League Park Center, Inc. (f. 1949), located in the Hough neighborhood of Cleveland, Ohio, was started by the Welfare Federation of Cleveland with two social workers in the old business office of League Park (6601 Lexington Ave.), with additional facilities at nearby Dunham Church of Christ. The Center has always had close ties with the Neighborhood Settlement Association, the Center focusing on the "development of Cleveland's inner city youth," with such programs as Headstart and athletic activities. The Center's other interests included improvement of the neighborhood and encouragement of street clubs, which worked for block and street preservation and sometimes promoted youth activities. The collection consists of articles of incorporation, a code of regulations, minutes, annual reports, correspondence, legal and financial papers, project reports, memoranda, newspaper clippings, and pamphlets and posters published by the corporation.
