Extracted from History of Olde Northfield Township by Mrs. Bessie Gooseman
In Mr. Perrin’s History of Summit County, he tells us that in 1819 the eligible voters of “Old Northfield Township” met at the cabin of George Cranny an elected officers to care for the area.
Each subdivision elected trustees to serve their respective interests in their own units as well as the interests of the overall area.
For many year the area worked agreeably. The areas were Northfield, Brandywine, and Macedonia; but in the1900′s many developments created a desire with the area to become villages.
After Macedonia, separated from the original Northfield Township in 1906 the remaining part stayed a Township until 1912 when it became a village. In 1932 another section wished to be served. In consists of, mostly, the western part of the village and was the main farming part. This was to be known as Sagamore Hills Township. It became a village in 1943 but surrendered its charter in 1947 and is once again a township. In 1935 there was another division made when the southern part of the remaining Northfield Village was severed from the northern section. The northern section retained its right to remain a village and is known as Northfield Village. While the southern section returned to Township rule and is known as Northfield Center Township.
The school system covers all of the City of Macedonia, Village of Northfield, Sagamore Hills Township, Northfield Center Township and a section of Boston Heights Village and is known as Nordonia Hills School System.
When you shop local, you invest in your community, in your neighbors, and in yourselves. In this economic climate, the best return on investment is in local business. It is estimated that for every dollar you spend, twice as much will be reinvested in the community by a local store than a national store.
