Administrative History: The Cleveland Society for the Blind (CSB) was founded in 1906 as a private non-profit agency to provide vocational training and rehabilitation services to blind and visually impaired persons in the Cleveland, Ohio area, and was originally called the Society for Promoting the Interests of the Blind in Cleveland. It was incorporated in 1909 and, in 1928, opened Highbrook Lodge, the first recreational camp in the U.S. built specifically for blind and visually impaired persons. The Society would later become known as Cleveland Sight Center.
