About Peninsula, OH

Settled in 1818, Peninsula, on the Cuyahoga River halfway between Cleveland and Akron, is a well-preserved mid-19th-century town that grew and prospered with the establishment of the Ohio and Erie Canal and the Valley Railroad. The village was plotted in 1837 by Herman Bronson. Peninsula was a bustling canal boat stop and home to several mills, stone quarries and boat yards, five hotels and 14 bars until 1887. The Gothic Revival Bronson Memorial Church, originally constructed in 1835 as the Bethel Church, according to William Perrin's History of Summit County (1881) was an attempt to “introduce moral and religious tactics among the vicious and unlawful practices of the canal boatmen.” In 1889 the church was remodeled in the Gothic Revival style. The historic district extends along Main Street and contains many fine examples of early 19th-century architecture.
