Northwood History

The community of Northwood, which was officially established on April 18th, 1874, was initially known as "Ross Township." In its early days, the community was comprised primarily of farms, gardens and orchards. Edward Ford's glass factory was built in 1898, which eventually led to Rossford village's incorporation in 1939. At that time, the village was a part of the Ross Township, however following the village's incorporation, Ross Township was divided, and ultimately ceased to exist. On December 1, 1962, the area was incorporated as the city of Northwood. It was named because of its location in the northern part of Wood County.
