Streetsboro is Full of History
As we celebrate Streetsboro’s bicentennial this year with a variety of special events, we must take time to reflect over the past 200 years, honor our history, acknowledge the growth and envision what the future holds.
While we take a look at the past and how we’ve grown, a wonderful place to visit and get a better understanding of where this amazing community came from, is with a visit to the Streetsboro Heritage Foundation/Singletary House.
This beautiful historical home was built in 1828 by John Singletary and over the years has served as a tavern, a stagecoach stop, a post office, the township’s first telephone exchange, three different antique shops and was a stop along the underground railroad during the civil war. Originally this home was located in the center of town but has been moved to 935 Singletary Drive and currently serves as the home of Streetsboro historical artifacts. The Singletary House is open every 1st & 3rd Sunday from 1pm – 3pm, including November 11th and December 18. They will not be open on January 1, 2023. 11/20 & 12/18. We will NOT be open 1/1/23. They also offer free private tours, to schedule one call (330) 730-9934. It is a wonderful place to visit and experience all the history that Streetsboro holds.
Streetsboro is an amazing place to visit and to live. As this wonderful city offers conveniences to highways, several major cities, hotels, restaurants, stores, and so much more not to mention the wonderful people that you’ll come in contact with, it still keeps that small town feel to it.
Come visit Streetsboro and experience, explore, enjoy all that this wonderful community has to offer.
