Cleveland Island is a small heavily forested island located in Wakeby Pond in Mashpee, Massachusetts. [1] It once belonged to president Grover Cleveland. [2] Cleveland once said that Daniel Webster caught a trout near the island, and then "talked mighty strong and fine to that fish and told him what a mistake he had made, and that he would have been all right if he had left the bait alone.
