During the Civil Rights Movement, the neighborhood received national attention as a flashpoint of racial tensions, when the Hough Riots occurred. Today it is a neighborhood that has seen an increase of redevelopment, although it remains among the city's poorest neighborhoods. Hough is also the location of League Park, the ballpark best known as the original home of the Cleveland Indians from 1901 to 1946. The site still has a baseball field on the original site and parts of the ballpark structure built in 1910, all restored in 2014.
