Title: New County of Summit Created
Author: EDITOR
Subject: summit county
This article was taken from the front page of the June 30, 1975 Sesquicentennial Special Section of the Akron Beacon Journal. It is probable that this article was originally abstracted from The Summit County Beacon, which was founded April 15, 1839, and was the precursor to the Akron Beacon Journal. The article outlines the two year battle to create the Summit County seat, and includes a drawing of the Summit County Courthouse from the 1840s.
