The town company laid out the site for Cleveland in October 1879 along the Kingman - Medicine Stage Line. A post office opened on January 2, 1880, and by 1881, Cleveland petitioned for the county seat. The results of an election held on November 7 determined that Cleveland's attempt to be the county seat failed. Kingman continued its status as the county seat.
The Hutchinson, Oklahoma and Gulf Railroad arrived in Cleveland in 1890. Because there was another Cleveland on the railroad line (in Oklahoma), the station was named Carvel. The town peaked in the early 1900's, and today there are fewer than 25 residents.
The ethnicity of its settlers is not known.
