Overview

Introduction to Fairlawn, Ohio

Fairlawn, Ohio, in Summit county, is 5 miles NW of Akron, Ohio (center to center) and 26 miles S of Cleveland, Ohio.

Fairlawn History

The incorporation of Fairlawn as a village in 1958 ensured improvements which were mandatory for a growing community. The village terminated the extension of Akron expressway, l-77. The westward extension of this expressway periled to divide the community. Another major accomplishment of the village was the concrete paving of 16 miles of road which was completed in four years. When the population reached 6,200, the village officially became a city. Summit County was named because the highest elevation on Ohio-Erie Canal was located in that area.
