Hike through Bay Village history this fall

Learn more about local history and Dover Township’s earliest residents by joining the Cleveland Hiking Club in Bay Village this fall.

Hikers and history buffs will meet at the Huntington water tower at Huntington Beach on Thursday, Sept. 12, at 9 a.m. to embark on a six-mile hike. The group will hike Lake Road and walk the land where the town fathers worked, practiced their faith and raised their families. The earliest residents of Dover Township chose to purchase lots near the lakeshore between Dover Center Road and the Avon Township line.

The next fall history hike will leave from the Cahoon Memorial Park gazebo in Bay Village on Thursday, Oct. 10, at 9 a.m. As the group hikes through the center of Bay Village, a tour guide will trace the city’s history from the arrival of the Cahoon family on Oct. 10, 1810, through the incorporation of Bay Village as a town in the early twentieth century. The Cleveland Hiking Club will hike at a moderate pace, stopping briefly to note the area’s rich history.

The history hikes are free of charge. Reservations are not required. Contact stephaniekwest@yahoo.com for additional information.
