This article commemorates the 200th birthday of the City of Stow and was abstracted from an 11-page history of Stow written in 1973 by Gay Fifer. Fifer compiled it from historical data and notes written by the late Frank Green, sexton of Stow Cemetary. The original manuscript is on file at Munroe Falls Historical Museum.
The article discusses many notable figures in Stow's history, including Judge Joshua Stow and William Wetmore.
A small reproduction map of Stow Township from the 1874 Summit County Atlas is included.
