William Case (August 10, 1818 – April 19, 1862) was an American politician of the Republican party and served as the 12th mayor of Cleveland, Ohio from 1850 and 1851. He was the first Cleveland-born citizen to become mayor.

In his early career, he helped form and became the first president of the The Forest City", as a result of a city-wide fruit-tree planting campaign.
