History & History Related Items

Olmsted Falls history:

In 1814, this area was known as Kingston and later as Lenox. By 1829, the name was again changed after Charles Olmstead who donated a library to the town - the first library west of the Alleghenies at that time. Eventually, the "a" was dropped from the name and the area was known as Olmsted Township. After a gristmill and sawmill were built at the falls, a settlement named Norris Falls was created in 1843. It was renamed Olmsted Falls in 1845. When the Cleveland, Columbus and Cincinnati Railroad came through in 1849, the community began to prosper and grow. It was incorporated just eight years later. After the Civil War era, growth slowed down and remained so under after World War II. In 1971, the Village of Olmsted and the Village of Westview merged to become the City of Olmsted Falls in 1972.
