The Hough neighborhood is an east side neighborhood bordered by University Circle to the east, Fairfax and Central to the south, and Goodrich-Kirtland Park to the west. The neighborhood was named after early landowners Oliver and Eliza Hough, who were also the namesakes of the eponymous Hough Avenue. The Hough neighborhood is home to League Park, a historic baseball stadium that hosted Cleveland sports teams throughout the 20th century.
