North Olmsted went from being an isolated farming community to a village in 1908 and then to a city in 1951. The stage was then set for it to rapidly grow into a thriving suburb in the last half of the 20th century. North Olmsted's rich heritage is illustrated in this book through historic photographs from the Olmsted Historical Society that highlight the city's residents, businesses, social centers, and schools.
