Introduction to Pepper Pike, Ohio

Pepper Pike, Ohio, in Cuyahoga county, is 8 miles SE of Euclid, Ohio (center to center) and 12 miles E of Cleveland, Ohio

Pepper Pike History

The area, which was settled around 1815, was named in honor of the Pepper family who settled along the Woodland Pike and used it for farming purposes. However, some believe that it was named because of the presence of pepper trees. When Orange Township was established in 1820, Pepper Pike was part of it. The community was primarily rural until the 20th century and cheese-making and dairy farming were the principal industries. In 1924, Pepper Pike was incorporated as a village, and in 1970, it was officially granted the status of a city.
