Title: lake, housing promised . . . Munroe falls hearing on 16-acre gravel mine
Author: Editor
Subject: Munroe Falls, Rezoning
This article is abstracted from the April 3, 1973 issue of the Akron Beacon Journal. At the time, Munroe Falls Village Council was considering a request to rezone 16 acres of the 100 acre Harry Olson farm from residential to industrial, to allow Damon and Hickey Gravel Company to operate a gravel quarry next to the river. The farm was situated along the west side of North Main Street. A second article on this subject was published later that week. Two photos are included with the article: one of the Harry Olson Farm House, and another of Mary Olson's Flower Shop, which was operated for many years.
