Short Sale Help Akron Ohio

Akron was founded in December 1825 by Simon Perkins. It began as a small village on the divide between the St. Lawrence River and the Mississippi River drainage basins. The village was a 43-block square with its main intersection at Exchange and Main Streets;[13] its northern limit was one block beyond State Street. Much of Akron’s early growth was because of its location at the summit of the Ohio and Erie Canal (thus the name Summit County) which at one time connected Lake Erie and the Ohio River.
The village was originally built mainly to serve people using the Ohio and Erie Canal as Akron was located in an area with a series of canal locks as the canal ascended from Cleveland to the Portage summit. In 1833, Eliakim Crosby established a “second” Akron just north of the existing village known as Cascade, which would also be referred to locally as “north Akron.”[14] Cascade developed around a construction project originally intended to provide increased water power for industries. In 1836 the villages joined under the Akron name. The completion of the Pennsylvania and Ohio Canal along Main Street in 1839 started Akron on its climb to industrial importance. Coal, a major railroad, and manufacturing growth from the Civil War contributed to a population increase from 3,500 to 10,000 inhabitants between 1860 and 1870.
