I always thought Smallville was in Ohio, since the Golden Age Superman worked in the city of Clevland, Ohio with its Lake Erie harbors

Yep -- good point.  Actually in the first issues there is no Smalville.  Though he is found in a rural area, it is pretty clear he's raised in Cleveland (as a child he is hurtling skyscrapers, etc.)

The GA Supes leaves Cleveland soon enough though (or does the name just change?)  Call it a version of brain drain.

The name just changes from Cleveland to a great metropolis to Metropolis.  After it gets the Metropolis name, the city started migrating to one of the coasts.

Sticking with Metropolis=Cleveland, I can guess where Midvale is.

Marion, Ohio.  It has been nicknamed the Heart of Ohio and is a mid-sized city/town.  Maybe Deleware, Ohio.  Another mid-sized town

Ohio does have farmlands and small towns that could pass for Smallville and with things like Olentangy Indian caverns, there are cave networks
