Akron: Proud City of Invention

As the 5th largest city in Ohio State, Akron boasts a population of 199,110, according to the 2010 census. The city serves as the place of the Summit County, an urban country considered to be the 4th county with a large population in the Ohio State. The city of Akron is conveniently located in the region of Great Lakes, just south of the Lake Erie, which is part of the Little Cuyahoga River. Apart from the fact that the Akron Metropolitan Statistical Area includes Portage and Summit counties, the city is also part of the Cleveland-Akron-Elyria Combined Statistical Area, which is obviously larger than the former. The city of Akron was founded as a village in 1836, and then incorporated as a city in the year 1865. Among its many nicknames, the most popular title given to the city of Akron is the City of Invention.

True enough, there were many things that were invented or founded in such a humble area in the state of Ohio. First of all, Akron is home to the National Inventor’s Hall of Fame. This non-profit organization celebrates the various inventors and patent holders who provided life-changing achievements or inventions in the United States of America. It was founded in 1973, and had been inducting inventors for a span of three centuries. The National Inventor’s Hall of Fame aims to preserve the legacies for the future generation. Inventure Palace, an interactive museum of cool inventions, is also located in Akron.

Akron is part of many life-changing inventions and legacies, such as the first balloon tire, synthetic rubber tire, rubber-wound golf balls, U.S. space suits, artificial fish bait, ice cream cone, automobile tires, caramel corn, hamburger, commercial tubeless tire and cotton-covered rubber fire hose. Rubber is indeed abundant in the city of Akron, which is why the city is also known as the Rubber Capital of the World in a historical context.

Aside from the inventions, the city of Akron is also considered as the land of beginnings. The city is said to be the birthplace of the U.S. trucking industry. It is also the home of the first established toy company, named the American Marble and Toy Manufacturing company, in the United States, courtesy of Samuel Dyke in 1891. The world-famous brand Quaker Oatmeal cereal company was founded in Akron, as well. In terms of education, Akron also implemented the first ever graded school system in America. The Alcoholics Anonymous, known as an international fellowship that provides mutual aid to alcoholics by sharing experiences, strength and hope is also founded in the city.
