Birthplace of Superman

10622 Kimberly Ave., Cleveland, Ohio 44108 USA

Add to Trip

“house where Superman was created”

The home of Superman creator Jerry Siegal. A sign and Superman logo can be seen on the fence, commemorating the birthplace of the Man of Steel and his creator. 

In the past, the city has not given Clark Kent and his alter ego much attention, even though he was invented by two boys on Cleveland’s East Side. But that is changing, as the city is slowly beginning to recognize its role in creating the superhero who stood for “Truth, Justice, and the American Way.”

In 1933, Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster dreamed up the comic strip hero with superpowers. Both boys were from immigrant Jewish families and lived down the street from each other in Glenville, then a booming, overwhelmingly Jewish, middle-class neighborhood, with kosher markets selling Yiddish newspapers on nearly every street corner. At the time, Cleveland was the fifth most populous American city, and a forward-thinking one at that, being the first to install public electricity and trolleys.

There is a large tree in the front yard blocking some of the house now, but it is still a cool stop off. Neighborhood seemed walkable enough.

The neighborhood itself has seen better days but the locals are friendly. When I visited Siegal's house, the current residents were sitting on the porch, open to conversation and didn't mind having photos taken. There was Superman memorabilia everywhere -- in the windows, around the porch, on their shirts! Worth a stop if you're in the area and a comic book geek.
