Join the author in reliving Sylvanias over 180 years of history from footpaths to expressways and beyond, in volume six of an eight-volume set. With over 30 years of research, she has included every subject imaginable that helped bring Sylvania to where they are today: with excellent schools, over-the-top parks and recreation, rich beautiful homes, commercial and industrial businesses, and a quaint historical downtown that looks like it was planned by Norman Rockwell himself. This book is a treasure trove of information for the thousands who have ancestors that once lived and helped Sylvania grow through these years. Located in Northwestern Ohio, Sylvania is a suburb of Toledo, Ohio, and for many years has been known as the fastest growing suburb in Lucas County. A once-rural farm community between both the city and township, they have grown from a combined 2,220 residents in 1910, to 48,487 in 2010. Over a short period of time, the land has transformed into beautiful subdivisions of grand houses so that now, their subdivision names are all that remain to remind them of their once-dense forests and sprawling farmlands. No longer can Sylvania be called the bedroom community of Toledo because over the last 50 years, they have done a lot more than sleep.
